I don't mind dying before you do. In fact, I rather prefer it that way.
Orson Scott Card
Whenever you read a cancer booklet or website or whatever, they always list depression among the side effects of cancer. But, in fact, depression is not a side effect of cancer. Depression is a side effect of dying.
It always comes down to just two choices. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
There is more to life than not dying.
