Just finished reading a book called "70 Historical figures who've died by suicide" (its not in English though).

I'll just name a few:

Mark Antony - Roman politician and general, a lover of Cleopatra
Marcus Junius Brutus - senator of Roman Republic
Vincent Van Gogh
Louis Henri Boussenard - fiction author
Virginia Woolf - writer

Demosthenes
Janis Joplin
Diogenes
Gerolamo Cardano - Italian polymath and inventor
Curt Cobain

Jack London
Yukio Misima - Japanese author, film director, poet etc
Marilyn Monroe
Neron
Pythagoras

Sappho - female poet from the infamous Lesbos island
Socrates
Sigmund Freud
Ernest Hemingway
Jimi Hendrix


Stefan Zweig
Empedocles
Pyotr Tchaikovsky - music composer
Seneca
Cleopatra

... and the list goes on...

It's comforting to think that those people, of much larger wit, knowledge, and experience than mine had to make a decision and ended their life with dignity and courage...
