These are Anton Chekhov’s last words, and the Guardian has a slideshow of some sometimes funny, sometimes chilling last words of quite a few literary figures.
(And while we’re talking about slideshows, I’d actually recommend the Jacket Copy write-up instead of the Guardian’s, because slideshows drive me freakin’ bonkers. Slideshows are for photography only, people. PHOTOGRAPHY!)
Among some other great ones:
“What’s that? Do I look strange?” — Robert Louis Stevenson
“I must go in. The fog is rising.” — Emily Dickinson
“I feel certain that I’m going mad again.” — Virginia Woolf
