A Knightian aside

Stumbled across the following in Risk, Uncertainty and Profit and rather liked it.
"We find ourselves compelled to strive after things which in a "cool, calm hour" we admit we do not want, at least not in fullness and perfection. Perhaps it is the manifest impossibility of reaching the end which makes it interesting to strive after it."
