Used up

I want to be all used up when I die.

Hi Robyn, i totally agree.
There's a great quote by Miguel de Unamuno:
Science says: “We must live,” and seeks the means of prolonging, increasing, facilitating and amplifying life, of making it tolerable and acceptable; wisdom says: “We must die,” and seeks how to make us die well.
Have a great weekend!

Tall order. "The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation, while here and there some great unselfish soul forgets himself into immortality." - Emerson.
