Et tu, Brute?

Shakespeare
These are the last words or "famous last words" of well known people, usually spoken in the moments just before death. Sometimes also called "dying words" if spoken at the moment of death, peoples' last words range from amusing to serious, and they often offer a fascinating insight into the person's character.
