If you have to help a person die, say nothing. Let the police do their own sleuthing.
Humphry quotes
Ugh! The plastic bag! Agreed. Not very aesthetic, but not so bad with a little a little prior practice to become accustomed to it.
Frequently I am asked if I will take my life when I have a terminal illness. My answer is: "I'll wait and see." If my dying is bearable, the pain well managed, and my self-control and dignity are not damaged, then I shall hang on and die naturally. But if I am one of the unlucky few who suffer abysmally, then I shall make a quick exit. This book is intended for readers who think much the same as me.

Humphry Derek quotes
Too soon is to waste the good aspects of life, and perhaps unkind to those who love and need you. Too late means you might lose control.
Humphry Derek
I tend to choose a doctor in the forties age range, male or female, in general preference to an older one. They understand the full implications of modern medical technology a great deal better than their elders, are more open to new ideas, and usually are keenly aware of today's medical controversies, including law and ethics.
Derek Humphry quotes
The right to choose to die in a manner and by a means of ones own choosing is the ultimate personal and civil liberty.
