On Decisions

”Generally speaking, in making a decision we have before us a large number of alternatives, none of which is demonstrably more “rational” than the others. We fall back … on motives of another kind, which are not “rational” in the sense of being concerned with the evaluation of consequences, but are decided by habit, instinct, preference, desire, will, etc.”

John Maynard Keynes
