Quote of the week

From Discover magazine, May 2001, page 16:

I have heard people give moving addresses as to why we should die as soon as possible “so that we can know God’s love sooner”. I am all for those people dying. I just know other people who don’t want to die, least of all by the horrible process of aging, and I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t be allowed to go on living.
