As I understand it, it could be a reference to the fact that the object of mathematics -which is to both discover and create intelligent order in the world- is the honor or PRIDE of the human spirit for being intelligent and superior to all other animals in this planet. In other words we, as intelligent beings, are honored to be able to both see and produce intelligent order in this universe. That's our hallmark and pride. "The object of mathematics is the honor of the human spirit"
