Last Words

A British programmer will start a new Twitter service called LIVESON. The purpose of this new service is to take all your past tweets, determine your writing patterns and if permitted by your Executor, continue your tweets after you have passed on to the great beyond.

Steve Jobs last words were "oh, wow, oh, wow, oh, wow." While not in themselves of great profundity, I find his last words very interesting to say the least.

I want to compile the last words of individuals whether infamous or famous, or even the not so famous.

Although both are probably apocryphal, my two favourites are:

George V: Bugger Bognor


John Sedgwick: They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance

My favorite one is this one:

"Oh dear, I think I'm becoming a God."

Drats, my two most favorite sets of last words (Sedgwick and Vespasian) have already been mentioned.

Julius Caesar and Augustus were both poignant in their final seconds in this world: 'you too, my son?' and 'have I played my part well?' respectively.

My favorite has always been the last words of Dutch Schultz, just because of how fascinatingly bizarre they are.

Thomas Jefferson's last words are not exact.
Three men left three different accounts, although all
three were pretty close in the same way.
Jefferson's last undisputed recorded words were:
"No, doctor, nothing more" as a dose of laudanum was
attempted to be given to him by his doctor. Jefferson's
last words were to a small handful of servants who worked
inside Monticello. He called them to his bedside and no one
knows what he told them. But the now very famous "Is it
the fourth?"
is the widely public accepted phrase that gets used.

Brazilian president Getulio Vargas in his suicide note

"Nada tenho a temer. Dou o primeiro passo no caminho da eternidade, e deixo a vida para entrar na história."

"I have nothing to fear.I take the first step on the road to eternity,and I leave the life to enter the history".

Epaminondas after being hit by a spear at Mantinea "It is time to die" ... there are other accounts of what he supposedly said, though this is the preferred quote from what I've read.
