it is a quote from fiction, a mystery story by Dick Francis. "He" is the father of a kidnap victim, "I" works for a company that advises kidnap victim's families (and those at risk for kidnapping). The conversation takes place the day just after the victim was returned unharmed.

"I can't bear to sell the house on Mikonos... my wife loved it."
"She loved Alessia too. She'd think it a fair swap."
He looked at me for a while. "You're a strange young man," he said. "You make things so clear." He paused. "Don't you ever get muddled by emotion?"
"Yes, sometimes," I said. "But when that happens... I try to sort myself out. To see some logic."
"And once you see some logic, you act on it?"
"Try to." I paused. "Yes."
"It sounds ... cold."
I shook my head. "Logic doesn't stop you feeling. You can behave logically, and it can hurt like hell. Or it can comfort you. Or release you. Or all at the same time."
After a while he said, stating a fact. "Most people don't behave logically."
"No," I said.
