Famous Last Words:
Fond Farewells, Deathbed Diatribes and Exclamations Upon Expiration

You Don’t Say – The best line, naturally, is attributed to Oscar Wilde: “I am in a duel to death with this wallpaper. One of us has to go.” The second best line belongs to Pancho Villa: “Don’t let it end like this. Tell them I said something.” Both are likely fiction but it warms my capitalistic heart to think that P.T. Barnum might have actually said, “How were the circus receipts in Madison Square Garden?”
