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.
