Either that wallpaper goes, or I do.
                                    Oscar Wilde, writer, d. November 30, 1900

I have offended God and mankind because my work did not reach the quality it should have.
                                      Leonardo da Vinci, artist, d. 1519

Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something.
                                     Pancho Villa, Mexican revolutionary, d. 1923

Sister, you're trying to keep me alive as an old curiosity, but I'm done, I'm finished, I'm going to die.
   Spoken to his nurse.
                       George Bernard Shaw, playwright, d. November 2, 1950


Let's cool it brothers . . .
   Spoken to his assassins, 3 men who shot him 16 times.
                               Malcolm X, Black leader, d. 1966

Go on, get out - last words are for fools who haven't said enough.
    To his housekeeper, who urged him to tell her his last words so she could  write them down for posterity.
                                     Karl Marx, revolutionary, d. 1883

my top 3 favorites are:

Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
~~ Martin Luther King

Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.
