Unknown to many and not cared about by even more are the last words of celebrities. Some people have obsessed with this strange fact concering personalities from all fields of professional lives. I have spent many hours of my life verifying the last words of famous people. This work could result in a fascinating book or a few volumes of books. Or it may have been a morbid waste of time.
Agrippina the Elder, Roman noblewoman: "I know my son Caligula will be emperor one day, so I am glad I showed him how to truly enjoy guests."
Annie Oakley, sharp shooter: "Bullseye!"
Arthur C. Clarke, author: "Right about now I wish science fiction was real."
Amedeo Avogadre, scientist: "Molecules, molecules, molecules. Now I have no use for them."
Bettie Page, model: "Cheesecake."
Andrew Bonar Law, British Prime Minister: "The sun didn't only set on the British Empire, I have but five minutes until it goes down on me."
Charles Darwin, naturalist: "I'm almost totally devolved."

Laura Secord, Canadian heroine: "I knew at least one good piece of music would come out of the War of Eighteen Twelve."

Nostradamus, astrologer, prophet: "I always knew there was no future in this profession."
