...but that's not why we do it

A few days back, my friend asked me: 'You must have thought of the pros and cons before doing this? Like risk-return?'.

I said: 'I should have done that, but we don't look for risk-return in everything. do we?'

Some investments are better without a return, and sometimes we like it that way. If we get a result, it may never be as beautiful as it was. On similar lines, sometimes things don't go the way we wanted, but we feel happier. There are things in life we do just for the sake of doing it and not for any return, and these are the things which make us feel good. On a lighter note, as Richard Feynman said, 'Physics is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that's not why we do it'. Well... this applies to many beautiful things in life, including some relationships.
