On deathbed. The last words of famous people

Last words of famous people
Pronounced just the seconds before death, the words are important. Especially if these words belonged to outstanding people who put their mark in history. When you have spent most of your life putting words down, it is only appropriate that you have something witty, humorous or poignant to offer on your deathbed. A writer’s life revolves around always knowing what to say and how to say it. But in the face of death, you’d think fear, pain and pressure would trump eloquence when speaking their last words. However, in the true form of their craft, (most of) these writers combine both honesty and eloquence to produce some of the greatest (and weirdest!) last words spoken.
