Definition of Preference

A sentiment, or frame of mind, induced by the erroneous belief that one thing is better than another.
  An ancient philosopher, expounding his conviction that life is no better than death, was asked by a disciple why, then, he did not die.
'Because,' he replied, 'death is no better than life.'
