“Time and again, we let the fear of loss overpower rational decision-making and often make ourselves worse off just to avoid a potential loss. Psychologists call this loss aversion, and it means we often tend to prefer avoiding losses at the expense of acquiring gains.”
L. Jon Wertheim

“As the late baseball manager Sparky Anderson put it: “Losing hurts twice as bad as winning feels good.”
L. Jon Wertheim

“the pain of losing a dollar is far more powerful than the pleasure of winning a dollar.”
