Famous last words?

Don't judge a book by its cover

History is littered with famous last words. Here are a few:

Either that wallpaper goes, or I do.
Oscar Wilde, writer, November 30, 1900

Go on, get out. Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough!
Karl Marx, revolutionary socialist, March 14, 1883

Damn it . . . Don’t you dare ask God to help me.
To her housekeeper, who had begun to pray aloud.
Joan Crawford, actress, d. May 10, 1977

I should never have switched from Scotch to Martinis.
Humphrey Bogart, actor, January 14, 1957

Waiting are they? Waiting are they? Well–let ’em wait.
In response to an attending doctor who attempted to comfort him by saying, ‘General, I fear the angels are waiting for you.’
Ethan Allen, American Revolutionary general, 1789

    Reblogged this on The Seeker and commented:
    Marti did it again. Tell here more famous last line. Mine is: I shall return (General McArthur to Phlippines) and I’ll be back! You know who said this! 😛

    Well after scotch there’s no reason for martini 😉

  5. Hilarious! And the quotes are useful — I’m going to stop complaining about the wallpaper.
