The grisly thought about a deathbed might be quite unnerving for anyone, but not for these famous people. Knowing the last words that someone spoke can sometimes throw light on their character or on the circumstances in which they died. You can't help but feel that some of the last quotes by famous people on this list encapsulate their personas. From the ever level-headed Winston Churchill, who declared in his final moments that he's 'so bored with it all' to the last wish from John Belushi to not be left alone. These famous last words can sometimes be ironically funny, and other times - eloquent and truly deep.

This list was compiled by Imgur user howsthepeeping. Do you know of any last words and inspirational quotes that belong on this list? We'd love to have them in this list, though we ask our readers to please keep both their comments and their submissions respectful of these people's memories.

according to wikipedia that's not even remotely true. He supposedly said something like "too bad, too bad, it's too late" - cause he couldnt drink the last wine delivery anymore.
