I have only the vaguest clues to go by, but I heard a quotation something like: if you want to make a dying man happy tell him everyone else is dying also. I don't remember where I read or heard the quote, and I don't remember who it was attributed to, though for some reason Sartre or Freud come to mind. Is this familiar to anyone? Google is failing me (or vice versa).
