I am rather older than75 but until this wretched lockdown was leading a full and busy life, glad to be alive,  by the time it ends I may feel differently

When it comes to money I would describe myself as a careful Christian (only by birth). Block & tackle, tow ropes and chains will be needed to drag my last breath from me.
I intend to use all the money that I’ve put into the NHS for decades. Call me selfish but my Father once told me, “it’s an investment”, it was and someday I will withdraw from it.

It's worth noting that he never actually says people should die at 75, but that it helps him to have that age in mind as he looks at how he spends his life. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/10/why-i-hope-to-die-at-75/379329/
A lot of his arguments are the usual stuff about the decline in the quality of life some of us experience as we become older - the only real difference is that he's suggested an actual cut-off point, but he's quite clear that he may feel different when he gets to that age. It's a good article, worth a read :O)
