    Ultimately, suicide is an act of selfishness.

    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    I was referring, and thought you were referring, to death. Not the act.

    Well, I was referring to the contemplation of the act.

    Perhaps the person is in such a dark place in their life that he/she sees suicide as a brighter thing because they're getting away from what is hurting them most. That's speaking from experience having been on the receiving end of one of those calls from a friend that committed suicide just after he hung up.

    Not intended to disrespect his memory. I didn't join until right at or just after the time the thread was posted. Speaking from an experienced perspective only.
