Nassim Taleb quote

"But promoting philosophical skepticism is not quite the mission of this book. If awareness of the Black Swan problem can lead us into withdrawal and extreme skepticism, I take here the exact opposite direction. I am interested in deeds and true empiricism....I am skeptical in matters that have implications for daily life. In a way, all I care about is making a decision without being the turkey." -Nassim Taleb, The Black Swan
