Dr. Lord said, “What’s the good of life, anyway? That’s the real question….. “The point is that one’s got an instinct to live. One doesn’t live because one’s reason assents to living. People who, as we say, ‘would be better dead’ don’t want to die! People who apparently have got everything to live for just let themselves fade out of life because they haven’t got the energy to fight. You’re one of the people who really wants to live, whatever you say about it! And if your body wants to live, it’s no good your brain dishing out the other stuff.
