LONGEVITY, n. Uncommon extension of the fear of death.

Ambrose Bierce


The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Who wants to live to be a hundred? What’s the point of it? A short life and a merry one is far better than a long life sustained by fear, caution and perpetual medical surveillance.

Henry Miller
