A Little Churchill

I had a feeling once about Mathematics--that I saw it all. Depth beyond depth was revealed to me--the Byss and Abyss. I saw--as one might see the transit of Venus or even the Lord Mayor's Show--a quantity passing through infinity and changing its sign from plus to minus. I saw exactly why it happened and why the tergiversation was inevitable but it was after dinner and I let it go.

Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)
