Would you rather die while you are still beautiful and young? Would you like to stretch you years until you are 80 or 90 years old?

I don’t want to die in my young stage. I have a lot of liabilities to carry out still. When we engaged with the family many compulsions are there and we have to complete them well in time. I am only earner in my house and three people depend on me and I want to settle them before die. If some one asked me when will you prefer to die I will say near 70 years is the right time for leave this body after that I don’t want to depend on any body.

I like to live as long as I am healthy. The moment I have to depend on someone or spend my time visiting hospitals, I wish I could leave this world.

Definitely older. I dont want to miss any part of my childrens lives. There is so much more to experience and fulfill before I die. However, I dont want to live if I dont know Im alive.

I think that 60 is a good time to go. Not TOO old, but it gives you about enough time to really live.

It depends on how I live my life. I would prefer to die young if I had done my part in whatever it is I should take part in and I feel there is nothing more I can add. But if what I have in mind is not yet fulfilled, I will continue to carry on until Somebody more powerful decides to free me. It's not how young or how old you die. It's how you lived your life. Live it well (I'm trying to convince myself here, lol).

Well it is better to die old so that you could enjoy the life and see both fun and troubles of life.

i don't wanna die in a very old age. 50 or 60 is okey for me. i don't wanna die when i feel so useless anymore. atleast at 50 or 60, i can still take care of myself. i hate being a burden to other people.

It might be counter-intuitive, but I'd rather not live long. I don't want to die tomorrow, because I still have a lot to do. I have to provide for my mother's and sister's future and give them a secure base to lead their lives. That apart, i don't much care for life. No one could give me a greater curse than to wish a long life for me. Having said that, as far back into my childhood as I can remember, I have always believed that i would live to the age of 52. Why 52? I don't know. But I have always felt that I would die at that age. Not much of a wait anymore. We will know whether the intuition was right or wrong in just about 20 years from now. Just hope it is right :-)

Anything will do actually! If I die young then also no problem...I will die without wrinkles{no offence} and the pains of old age and there will be many alive to cry for me after I am gone{this is stupid I know :P} And if I die old I will be glad for having seen my grandchildren and played with them.

Well of course the older I get the more I want to die old. But in reality I am not so sure that is the best life to live. I watch my Mother every day go down hill and see how miserable her life is now that she does not work, can not see well, stumbles when she walks, has aches and pains all the time, can't remember things as well as she could. All these things make me think I would like to die after I complete my time here, which would be within a few years after retirement.
