Logic is no answer to passion

Came across a quote recently from Journalist Herb Caen that caught my fancy.  Caen wrote, "Logic is no answer to passion."

Interesting POV.

What does the quote mean to you?

Taking the linear, clinical view, to me, it means this:

Passion (def.) "strong and barely controllable emotion" greater than Logic (def.) "reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity."

Sounds about right. 

To carry this particular thesis forward a little further, often times, in a world that moves at the speed of light, leaders choose to make decisions in a world of imperfect information at a timetable that suits them. Similarly, faced with imperfect information, I'll err on the side of that which stokes my passion. It's an easier to sell myself on passion than logic.
