I've been reading 'Life Of The Stoics' and one thing I loved was how open some where to death.
Great idea for a list.
I love to laugh. I can't think of a better way to go.
2. Defending someone's honour
I don't think I'd die fighting for myself, but I can see me doing it for a loved one. Hell I'd stand up for a stranger if I saw them being abused. But if weapons where involved would I risk my life for a stranger? Probably not, but who knows.
Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one - Marcus Aurelius
Socraties was sentenced to death. He could easily have left the city and carried on with his life, but he chose to stay and serve out his sentence. To accept death like that is something I look up to. I hope it doesn't come soon, but when it does I hope I'm able to face it like he did.
4. Old age
I hope to reach a good age. Once I feel it's my time I'd like to accept it and pass peacefully. I don't want to lose my mind or become sick at that age. I'll be healthy now so I can live out a good life when I'm older.
5. Floating off into space
I leave the spaceships, but I forgot to attach myself to the ship. I drift away, die, and keep on drifting.
