At the End of Life

Info bulb.pngHeal the sick, comfort the dying. And don't confuse the two. Quality of life is more important than quantity alone.

There is a difference between living a long and fulfilling life as a result of lifelong healthly lifestyle, quite another to have your life unnecessarily prolonged when you are sick and clearly beyond cure. The first is desirable, though not guaranteed; the second is a sorry way to exit the world. See also Palliative care
