No Pleasure Will I Decline

I get so tired of the continuous and tiresome reports or discoveries that this, that or the other causes cancer or some other dreadful disease, as if avoiding this experience or that pleasure we somehow avoid death, we somehow hide from death, it might be said. We don’t; we can’t. Life is all risk and it’s as well to accept it for what it is. I will not forego any pleasure for the promise of a few extra years in some old folk’s home; oh no. And if I have to die young so be it; at least I will die with my eyes open. :-)
