leave it to syliva plath to respond pessimistically and critically of a normal, healthy aspect of human life. life is short, and thus has clear limits, and there is no reason for her to regard that as a flaw. it's our nature.

much better to consider what others have to say about limitations:

“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”
- Jamie Paolinetti

“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.”
- Napoleon Hill

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
- Patanjali

“Focus on your potential instead of your limitations.”
- Alan Loy McGinnis

“I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.”
- Hellen Keller

“The man with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
