Famous Last Words

Now that I'm death-focused, I'm remembering some of the choice door-of-death quotes:

"They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance." A Northern Civil War general, right before a canon ball tore through his horse, taking his leg off in the process (he bled to death).

"Mehr Licht!" ("More light!") Rainer Maria Rilke, a German poet, typical poet bullshit.

"Fuck 'em all." William Claude "W.C." Fields.

Mr. Wilde was a real corker. I love the preface to "The Picture of Dorian Gray." Maybe I'll post it.
