Rereading this was depressing

So the following definitely qualifies as “prose-deficient” in my book.  Kind of disgusted that I produced this for a class…

 

“I think the main explanation that I believe in logic directing our lives over Hume’s view of passions is because concrete reasoning resonates more with me than something as ambiguous as passion.  Logic remains the same despite circumstance whereas passion is inherently influenced by one’s environment and the situations one finds themself in.  Perhaps this is due to my desire to maintain some semblance of control over my life.  If I can remain close to logic’s guidance, I can comfortably know that I have made a better decision than one that was inspired by passion, even if the end result of the passion-driven decision yielded greater utility.”
