Hi according to https://www.brainyquote.com/authors/maimonides-quotes

Rambam said the quote “The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision.”

Where does he say this though?

    The (possibly alleged) Rambam quote "The risk of a wrong decision is preferable to the terror of indecision" is widely attributed to Rambam on a huge number of Internet sites. I will stick my neck out here and opine that this is not a genuine quote.

  • If indecision means no decision, isn't it sometimes better? Keep the status quo for now. Commented Jul 7 at 15:58
  • Saw on one random website that its allegedly in "guide to the perplexed, 76."

    @Shababnik I also saw the guide to the perplexed, 76 citation. I could not square that with the Friedlander or Pines translations of the Guide.
