[My] many hours of physical effort as a youth also meant that my body, never frail but also initially not particularly strong, has lasted much longer than a sedentary occupation might have otherwise permitted. Above all, work and solitude, the two conditions of a mathematician’s best hours, became at an early age my frequent companions.
