Top 10 Last Words That Tell a Story

Some people's last words are prophetic like when Nostradamus proclaimed "tomorrow, at sunrise, I shall no longer be here". Others are poetic like when author and entomologist Vladimir Nabokov stated "a certain butterfly is already on the wing". Some of the most memorable are from people with a sense of humor to the end. An example is murderer James W. Rodgers who asked someone to "bring me a bullet-proof vest" when asked if he had any last words before being executed by a firing squad.

In the spirit of this final type of dark humor, this list is for last words from people who may or may not have known they were at death's door, but based on their words, we not only know they were in their final moments, we know exactly how they met their end.
