Famous Last Words

       I think that, from some of my previous posts, most of you know my fondness for the quips and quotes of Mark Twain.  Now, recently I saw a Bing Video called 10 Famous Last Words

  • Jack Daniels – “One last drink, please.”
  • Oscar Wilde – “My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death.  One or the other of us has to go.”
  • Elvis Presley – “I hope I haven’t bored you.”
  • George Washington – “I die hard, but am not afraid to do so.”
  • Dylan Thomas – “I’ve had eighteen straight whiskies.  I think that’s the record…”
  • Humphrey Bogart – “I should never have switched from Scotch to Martinis.”
  • Bob Marley – “Money can’t buy life.”
  • Winston Churchill – “I’m bored with it all.”
  • Al Capone – “You can get more with a kind word and a gun thatn you can with a kind word alone.”
  • Karl Marx – “Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough.”

       And if you have read my historical novel Nathan Hale, you also know that our first spy’s last words were “My only regret is that I have but one life to lose for my country.”  You can see the video at http://www.bing.com/videos/watch/video/10-famous-last-words/uf7sacz3?q=All-Time+10s&rel=msn&from=en-us_msnhp&form=msnrll&gt1=42010&adlt=strict.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did…
