"Passion drives out reason..."

Quote of the Week:
Never act in a Passion. If you do, all is lost. You cannot act for yourself if you are not yourself, and passion drives out reason.... That is why lookers-on see most of the game, because they keep cool.
~ Baltasar Gracián (1601-1658), Oráculo Manual y Arte de Prudencia (1647)
