“My Purpose Driven Death: How I Became One Lucky Stiff.”
“The choice isn't whether to die. No one is exempt from that One-Death-Per-Birth rule. I am that lucky stiff who got to choose some of the specific features of the experience.”
“Metaphorically speaking, I didn't want my approaching union with the debonair Mr. Oblivion to be solemnized in a hasty 2 a.m. shotgun wedding, with a few glum family members in their bathrobes looking on. I didn't want my one-and-only death to be a forcible abduction by a barely-glimpsed stalker who sneaked up and conked me on the head before dragging me off to his rude hovel.”
“I got inklings that my life's 'best if used by' date was becoming gradually decipherable ... I wanted to avoid suffering, loss of control over my body and life circumstances or allowing some outside 'expert' or a panel of them to dictate the terms of my experience of the all-important last stage of my life.”
Annie Chase, U.S. artist
(1946 - 2010)
