It is hard to accurately imagine what you would say if you were dying. Most people would think about things they wish they have said or done. It is the things that they lacked and refrained from that make them most regretful. Others just worry about their loved ones and mostly their children. Some people would worry about their life work and achievements from destruction and diminution. Some become fearful of what happens after! The most stunning ones are the ones who try to funny, sarcastic and consistent. What do you think you’ll be feeling like? For me it is the peaceful death that’s all I hope. Look at these well-known people and the phrases they liked to put at the end of their book!
1.” Go on, get out! Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough!”
This was said by Karl Marx when his housekeeper asked him if he had any last words before he die. Now Marx did make a solid point about whether or not he needs to say anything at all, that’s one way to see it!
2. ” I have not told half of what I saw.”
This was said by Marco Polo, the ventian traveller and writer. It could be the love of details that made him say that but I do not think it was a lack of achievement as it might insinuate. But should we feel satisfied or not in such a position especially when we have achieved a lot? This depends on how you view life.
3.” A King should die standing.”
This wad said by Louis XVIII, king of France. King Louis suffered from gout which left him wheelchair-bound most of his adult life.
4. “Brothers! Brothers, please! This is a house of peace!”
This wad said by Malcom X, the American human rights activist, breaking up a fight moments before he was shot.
5. “In keeping with Channel 40′s policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see another first — attempted suicide.”
This was said by Christine Chubbuck, 30-year-old anchorwoman, who shot herself live on air. This is by far the most sarcastic suicide on our list.
6. “Acta est fabula, plaudite!” (The play is over, applaud!)
This say is attributed to Caesar Augustus, ruler of the Roman empire. The phrase is commonly know to signify the end of a theatre performance.
7. “I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man.”
This was said by Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara right before his execution in Bolivia.
8. “My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or the other of us has to go.”
This was said by Oscar Wilde, I wish he got rid of the wallpaper though! Wilde was amazing, funny and eloquent even in writing such a funny comment.
9. “Don’t let me die like this, say I said something.”
This was said by Rmiliano Zapata the Mexican revolutionary. It is such a beautiful sentence that reveals an aspiration for greatness and immortality.
10. “Well, gentlemen, you are about to see a baked Appel.”
This was said by George Appel, a convicted murderer who was sentenced to the electric chair. He shouted these words to members of the press who witnessed his execution.
What would you say? Or better what is the most important thing ever in your life? I know that it might be cheesy to tell you to cherish every moment you have in your life. However I even have a better thing to say; make it worth the pain! Life is painful and, luckily, we will have to do it once so let’s make the best we could with what we have! Let’s not have any regrets or stupid thoughts when we lay in our beds for the last time!
