Random Quote #24

“Those of us left behind search for dignity in order not to think ill of ourselves. We try to atone for our dying friend’s inability to achieve a measure of dignity, perhaps by forcing it on him. It’s our one possible victory over the awful process of this kind of death.”

S. B. Nuland, in How we die: reflections on life’s final chapter
