People want the right to die at a time of their own choosing. Too many families have watched helplessly as a relative dies slowly, longing for death.
I turn and turn in my cell like a fly that doesn't know where to die.

I don't collaborate. You're born alone, you die alone, you get on stage alone.
We all die, we all get sick, we all feel hunger and lust and pain, and therefore human life is consistent from one generation to the other. We all - most of us, anyway - want connections with other people and spend our lives looking for them.
So often we talk about saving the planet, but what we really mean is to save the planet the way it is, so we can live here. So that is can sustain us. Because the planet doesn't need to be saved. It doesn't care if all the squirrels, elephants, and trees die and there's just a couple of amoebas floating around at the poles.
For me personally, I have a fear of, 'If I stop, I'm going to die.' If I stop doing the things that are enriching to me or creatively exciting to me or if I stop creating, then I feel stagnant. If something isn't growing, it's dying.

Joni Eareckson Tada
My failure to lay aside the sin that so easily entangles is the direct result of my refusal to die to my natural proclivity toward attaining my own freedom, meaning, value, worth, and righteousness - not believing that, by virtue of my Spirit - wrought union with Christ, everything I need, I already possess.

When I die, if the word 'thong' appears in the first or second sentence of my obituary, I've screwed up.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
