Thomas Edison's last words were:
It's very beautiful over there.
And Mr Barrie said: I can't sleep
Before he dreamed his way to Neverland.

And seventy-four years later,
When it was Mr Jobs' time to go
He said Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow
Before he left this world.

Let's go and see the other side
And touch the clouds with our lost lives.
But maybe there's just plain old darkness,
That's familiar even though it's cold.

Mr Darwin said he was not afraid,
And Ms Austen asked for nothing but it
The revolution that was Mr Marx said:
Last words are for fools who haven't said enough.
And no they didn't, they never said enough.

You may never have known these names
Until my inky sentiments for their last words.
Just another jumble of letters on the list of the dead
Yet there's something wonderful in what they said.

When McKinley was shot
And didn't die for days
His wife screamed: I want to go too.
And he just said: We are all going.
I suppose Mr Edison was right.
It must be very beautiful over there.
‘Thomas Edison's last words were: “It's very beautiful over there.” I don't know where there is, but I know it’s somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.’
- John Green, Looking for Alaska

I've really got to read that book...
i totally thought 'Alaska' when i read this though because my friend told me some years back that she was reading a book about a girl mildly obsessed with last words called 'Looking for Alaska' and such things stick in my brain...
