Famous Last Words

The last words of famous people are of great interest to the public, as well as often hotly debated. In some cases, published reports vary. The linked collection of celebrities' last words is no exception. There, John Lennon's reported last words differ from this account by Eddie Dezeen, the latter of which is likely more accurate, since it's based on words Lennon supposedly spoke to paramedics in the ambulance. The words ascribed to Walt Disney have also been a source of contention, a story on which this article elaborates.

Maybe in the end, the words uttered during the final firing of the brain's synapses before death are given more weight and meaning than they should. Even so, it's likely that people will always be curious. See the linked collection of last words, including Bob Marley, Joe DiMaggio, Malcolm X, James Dean, Joan Crawford and others at Vintage Everyday.
