    Est-ce ma faute, si je trouve partout des bornes, si ce qui est fini n’a pour moi aucune valeur? Cependant je sens que j’aimela monotonie des sentiments de la vie, et si j’avais encore la folie de croire au bonheur, je le chercherais dans l’habitude. [Chateaubriand: René]

    je ne peux pas comprendre et je ne peux pas accepter la traduction anglaise:

    [...]
    dans l’habitude = in the exercise of habit ?

    Merci!

    May be here "routine" would fit better than "habit". It is an old acception of "habitude" in French.

    Hi

    I'll find it in the ordinary?

    Other translations say:
    ...I would seek it in an orderly existence.
    ...in what is habitual.
