A quote from William Gurnall:
The desire to resist death is not so strong in one who has long been ill and wasting away, as it is in the one who has been sick only a few days and still has strength to fight. The same tendency is found in the saint. That Christian whose love of this life has been wasting away for many years will more easily part with his earthly life then he whose love for it is stronger.~William Gurnall (The Christian In Complete Armor Volume One, Chapter 4, Part 2)
