A case for suicide

Even in death a man should be independent, choosing for it his own place and time; suicide is legitimate. When he is tired of life, and can leave it without injuring others, he will have no scruples against suicide.

“This is one reason why we cannot complain of life, it keeps no one
against his will. You have had veins cut for the purpose of
reducing your weight. If you would pierce your heart, a gaping wound
is not necessary; a lancet will open the way to freedom, and
tranquillity can be purchased at the cost of a pinprick Wherever you look, there is an end to troubles. Do you see that precipice?- it is a descent to liberty. Do you see that river, that cistern, that sea?- freedom is in their depths” …seneca
