Life is More than What’s Measurable

Alex’s comment about naturalists ignoring what is right before their eyes reminded me of another excellent quote (yes I do like quotes; they remind me that 99% of what I know, I owe to someone else):

Failing the possibility of measuring that which you desire, the lust for measurement may result in measuring something else – and perhaps forgetting the difference – or in ignoring some things because they cannot be measured.

G. Udney Yule, as quoted by Nobel laureate Friedrich Hayek
