“The greatest dignity to be found in death is the dignity of the life that preceded it. This is a form of hope we call all achieve, and it is the most abiding of all. Hope resides in the meaning of what our lives have been.”
Sherwin B. Nuland, How We Die: Reflections of Life's Final Chapter

“The art of dying is the art of living. The honesty and grace of the years of life that are ending is the real measure of how we die. It is not in the last weeks or days that we compose the message that will be remembered, but in all the decades that proceeded them. Who has lived in dignity, dies in dignity.”
Sherwin B. Nuland, How We Die: Reflections of Life's Final Chapter

“-when the human spirit departs, it takes with it the vital stuffing of life. Then, only the inanimate corpus remains, which is the least of all the things that make us human.”
Sherwin B. Nuland, How We Die: Reflections of Life's Final Chapter
