Famous Last Words

Famous Last Words

 |  Fun and Games

On this day in history, Julius Caeser was murdered, with his alleged last words being “and you, my child?” (to Brutus, one of his attackers). We thought we’d take a look at some other important figures from history, and what their apparent last words were.


Charles Darwin - "I am not the least afraid to die."


Marie Antoinette – (after stepping on the executioner’s foot) "Pardon me. I didn't do it on purpose."


Winston Churchill – “I am bored with it all.”


Michel de Nostradamus - "You will not find me alive at sunrise."


Nancy Astor (the first woman to serve in the British House of Lords) – “Is it my birthday, or am I dying?”


Karl Marx – “Last Words are for those fools who believe they have not yet said enough!”


Emily Dickinson - "I must go in, for the fog is rising."


Steve Jobs - "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."


Bob Marley – “Money can’t buy life.”


Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - (To his wife) "You are wonderful."


Lenoard Nemoy – (not his last words, but his last tweet) “"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP."


Of course, it’s entirely possible that a lot of these aren’t true. But they’re probably more interesting than the truth anyway.
