"If I were a maker of books, I would make a register, with comments, of various deaths. He who would teach men to die would teach them to live." -- Montaigne.
FAREWELLS, your almanac of last words and last thoughts, is now available at Amazon and also from the author. The book is a wide-ranging collection of quotes, by the famous, the near-famous, and the not-so-famous. Some excerpts:
“I am dying, with the help of many doctors.” – Alexander the Great.
“I did not get my spaghetti. I got Spaghetti-Os. I want the press to know this.” – Condemned murderer Thomas Grasso, referring to his last meal.
“In heaven all the interesting people are missing.” – Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
