Last words, last thoughts, last things.

Some of us would rather die than dance
Anna Pavlova, the great Russian dancer, died on this day in 1931. As she was dying (of pneumonia), she said, "If I can't dance, then I'd rather be dead."
Her last words were "Get my swan costume ready," followed by "Play that last measure very softly."
