“I can’t talk about our love story, so I will talk about math. I am not a mathematician, but I know this: There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others.
Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.
A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set.
I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for
Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful
I am for our little infinity.
I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”
My favorite part from TFiOS. And, oh, I hope I can think like Hazel Grace :” to be grateful for her little infinity.
