Famous Last Words

Here are some famous last words:

“Mehr licht” (“more light”) – Goethe

“Ram” – Gandhi

“Let’s rent a movie” – Swami Satchidananda (his way of encouraging his students to leave the room so he could pass in peace.)

“Calcium carbonate” – from a geology professor who dropped dead in the middle of a lecture about stalactite formation.

Garnet was having a conversation with his grandmother who had died some 20 years before, so he had no words for the rest of us.

As for me, my second-to-last words will probably be, “Thank you,” since they are being repeated silently most of the time anyway. For the last, who knows?

As for the Rg Veda, regarding the source of Creation, it is said, “He surely knows. Or maybe He knows not.”

As for now, “Doesn’t look like it’s going to rain today. Famous last words.”
