What with all the threats to leave and never darken the doorstep of Queenzone I thought I'd leave some reminders of the last words of the good, the great, the unheard of and the downright made up stuff (see William Wallace, probably scripted by Mel Gibson himself and financed by the US film industry).

"Why are you weeping? Did you imagine that I was immortal?"
(To his deathbed attendants .)

"Cool it, brothers..."
(His last words before being assassinated.)

"You Americans are fat and wobbly and can't play golf."

"Nonsense, they couldn't hit an elephant at this distance."
(after a suggestion that he should not show himself above
the parapet during the Battle of the Wilderness.)
Saki (Hector Hugh Munro) (1870-1916)

And as for myself...
