But I've read your version Act of Oblivion τοο,I don't know which is true.


..i am not sure as to the truth, but this one made me chuckle because it sounds like it was translated by an Englishman!!!!....

True, most "last words" are either dramatized or were never said at all.

    "Forward comrades! . . . Forward in the name of the Rebellion. Long live Animal Farm! Long live comrade Napoleon. Napoleon is always right."

-Boxer, from the Animal Farm

"Wait 'till I have finished my problem!"
-Archimedes, during the Romans beseiging his city. I quote this when my teacher tries to take away my test paper, because I add solutions on the test paper that will solve all the world problems - that is, my unquestioned regime.

"I have loved my German people and my fatherland with a warm heart. I have done my duty by the laws of my people and I am sorry this time my people were lead by men who were not soldiers and that crimes were committed of which I had no knowledge. Germany, good luck."
-Ernest Kaltenbrunner, from the trial

And many more...

lol... loved the one about Sharon Stone, even if it's not her last words.
 
Here's my contribution, I can't recall the exact sentence (I'll check on it and correct it tomorrow) but it goes something like this:
 
"Hurrah boys, we've got them" - George A. Custer at Little Big Horn, as quoted by a bloke with an italian sounding name.
"If the tanks succeed, then victory follows"
- Heinz W. Guderian
