Milton Berle (1908-2002) and Dylan Thomas (1914-1953) on Aging, Cost of Care, and Resistance to Dying
However old we get, no matter how close we are to the end, we want to live another day, whatever it costs.
As comedian Milton Berle remarked "When it comes to my health, money is no obstacle."
As poet Dylan Thomas observed,
"Do not go gentle into that good night.
Old age should burn and rage at the close of day ;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
