 Emily Dickinson once said...

The heart asks pleasure first, And then, excuse from pain; And then, those little anodynes That deaden suffering; And then, to go to sleep; And then, if it should be The will of its Inquisitor, The liberty to die.

In Heart Quotes, by Emily Dickinson , Source: Poems (IX), (ed. 1891)
