Quote #54: on the flawed nature of human decision-making
"Men decide far more problems by hate, love, lust, rage, sorrow, joy, hope, fear, illusion, or some other inward emotion, than by reality, authority, any legal standard, judicial precedent, or statute."
- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 B.C. - 7 A.D.), Roman statesman and philosopher.
