Famous last words



Prolific author, best known for his science fiction, H. G. Wells’ dying words were: “Go away, I’m alright”.


And soul legend Barry White shuffled off this mortal coil, with the immortal words: “Leave me alone, I’m fine”.

Brilliant (but also sad, right?)



“Europeans have often come to grief looking for Gold in South America”

My favourite quote of the day.  That was Kevin Mitchell writing in the Guardian.  Context: it’s the Monday after the weekend when Great Britain have just won a sackful of medals at the Rio Olympics.
