Famous Last Words


Victor Hugo: I see black light.

Emily Dickinson: I must go in, the fog is rising.

H. G. Wells: Go away, I’m all right.

James Joyce: Does nobody understand?

Dylan Thomas: I’ve had eighteen straight whiskies, I think that’s the record . . .

Oscar Wilde: Either that wallpaper goes, or I do.

Oscar Wilde was, a very sarcastic man, if we believe all the quotes about him.

You can't top the Oscar Wilde. I believe he wrote it ahead of time.

Rodney Dangerfield's grave marker in the Westwood cemetery says: "There Goes the Neighborhood".

I knew the wilde quote and always liked it a lot. Go away, I'm all right is another good one.

In my grave marker should say "Please, clean your shoes before step on my face"

Oscar said...

Wasn't it Mae West who said "Come up and see me sometime?" I don't think it was her final words though.
