    Die, my dear? Why, that's the last thing I'll do! – Groucho Marx

    These are great, but there are so many great last words quotes. My favorite on your list is Frank Baum, but one of my all-time favs is George Bernard Shaw's: "Dying is easy, comedy is hard." I'd love to go out with a line like that!

    When Einstein died on April 18, 1955 he left a piece of writing ending in an unfinished sentence. Here is the last portion of his note:

    They do so even though such a policy entails the risk of war and doom. Not one statesman in a position of responsibility has dared to pursue the only course that holds out any promise of peace, the course of supranational security, since for a statesman to follow such a course would be tantamount to political suicide. Political passions, once they have been fanned into flame, exact their victims … Citater fra…

    I am not sure what his last spoken words were or what Citater fra… is supposed to mean.

      So his last words were, “Citations from…” and then he ended. Possibly purposely? To signify he was a “nobody,” when it came right down to it?

      A truly brilliant mind, until he spoke his mind, and politicians didn’t like what he was saying. Perhaps it didn’t fit into their agenda?

    The great Goethe cried out on his deathbed "More Light! More Light!" And William Sydney Porter, aka "O. Henry" uttered this similar, though humbler, plea on his: "Turn up the lights, boys, I don't want to go home in the dark."

    I believe Buck Barrow's (Clyde's brother) last words were much like Dutch Shultz'. Non-sensical) There is a famous photo and that scene was recreated in the film starring Warren Beatty

    Dutch Schultz's liver was damaged/destroyed by the fatal shot, and he hung on in the hospital for about a day, delirious with fever and stoned to the gills on morphine with a police stenographer sitting next to him the whole time, taking down page after page of his more or less incoherent ramblings and rantings. Makes for a real fun read.

    Oh yeah, Karl Marx's last words (when being pressed by someone who was there to say something profound on his way out) were something like "Last words are for fools who haven't said enough!"

    Danton, executed by guillotine during French revolution, reportedly said to the executioner: "Show my head to the crowd. It's worth it."

    Ludwig van Beethoven: "I will hear in heaven." He got deaf in his last years.

    A lame joke says that John F. Kennedy's last words were "I need this parade like I need a f***in' hole in my head." ;)

            Actually it is a scientific theory, but that doesn’t mean it’s untrue or unproven because the difference between a scientific law and a scientific theory is:

            Scientific Law: This is a statement of fact meant to explain, in concise terms, an action or set of actions. It is generally accepted to be true and universal, and can sometimes be expressed in terms of a mathematical equation. They explain what will occur in a given circumstance.

            Scientific Theory: A theory is an explanation of a set of related observations or events based upon proven hypotheses and verified multiple times by detached groups of researchers. They explain facts and, sometimes, laws.

            A law governs a single action, whereas a theory explains an entire group of related phenomena.

    July 4th, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, the last two Founding Fathers are dying. Thomas Jefferson dies first. John Adams, as he dies, says, "Well, at least Jefferson still lives." And then they both were gone.

    I have two. I really thought at least one of these would have been on here, especially Francis Albert's.

    Frank Sinatra: "I'm losing it." Ol' Blue Eyes suffered from dementia in his later years.

    Terry Kath, one of the original guitarists for Chicago, had a line worthy of the Darwin Awards. At a party, he held a gun to his head and said the infamous line, "Don't worry, it's not loaded." Damn shame, a waste of a talent.

      Actually that was Caligula. Lol. Caligula’s own guards were killing him. I’m guessing after they were done, he shouted those words, then collapsed and died.

      That’s Spike Milligan’s epitaph too.

    “With those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace with the Prophets and the truthful ones, the martyrs and the good doers.
    O God, forgive me and have mercy upon me and join me to the Companionship on high.” Then at intervals he uttered these words: “The most exalted Companionship on high. To God we turn and to Him we turn back for help and last abode.”
