To every thing there is a season...
...and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time
to die (Ecclesiastes 3.1-2)
Unless the deceased is a centenarian, death never seems timely. And death is
never less timely than when it affects the young. But we must remember that
life and death are inseparable, and that medicine involves death as well as life.
So let’s fight for life, but learn to accept the inevitability of death. And let’s
focus on the quality of life, and not just the quantity.
