what about that definition Gérard ?
“To finish” has a meaning closer to "end"; whereas “to complete” has a meaning closer to fullfil”. Complete can be used to show that you have the whole of something.

What about to end and to quit and to exit?

Gérard to end=>to come to a final point or to come to a specified place.
           to quit=>to leave a place
           to exit=>to go out

The 3 meanings are slightly different

Gérard I'm not very keen on fasting and I prefer babysit for my grandchildren. I'm sure you share my view-point
http://abc7.com/health/study-grandparents-who-babysit-live-longer/2411739/
Taking care of kids keeps grandparents physically active and helps relieve stress. And on the flip side, spending time with grandma and grandpa is also great for kids. It gives them extra stability and emotional support.

Muriel, it's not either fasting ot babysitting, you can do both.

However "I prefer babysit for my grandchildren" is not correct, you have to say "I prefer babysitting for my grandchildren" or "I prefer to babysit for my grandchildren".

Tx for your correction. The problem with fasting is that you're hungry and no longer nice with the kids aren't you ?

10 things strong women don't give a damn about
We can all agree that most of us take life a little too seriously. Sure, you may only get life once, but what’s the point in getting it if you’re not going to enjoy it? And let’s be honest, most of your daily worries aren’t going to matter in the long run. In fact, all …

IDEAPOD.COM|DE LACHLAN BROWN



I don't care that much about this article... LOL
I just wanted to point out the "give a damn about" and more specifically the "damn".
I often use synonyms here: "don't give a rat", "don't give a shit", etc.
Something interesting about "damn" is that it's usually an adjective or an adverb or an interjection.
Here "damn" is a noun and the expression "don't give a damn" is the only use:


A n not to give a damn s'en ficher¡; not to give a damn about sb/sth se ficher de qn/qch; it's not worth a damn¡ ça ne vaut pas un clou¡; he can't sing worth a damn US il chante comme un pied¡.
