“To Return or not to Return? That is the question.”

Why would anyone contemplate a dangerous, often fatal maneuver? We all have an internal recording of our instructor’s voice saying, “If the engine quits on take-off, land straight ahead!”
The question is, “why?” Why is it dangerous to attempt a return to the runway after an engine failure on take-off?
Is there an altitude high enough to warrant a try? If so, how do you determine that altitude? Or, should we decide that we will never try a turn back for landing, no matter what altitude we have, and no matter what lies ahead?
