Life is hard. Then you die.
As per wikipedia,
Last words or final words are a person’s final articulated words said prior to death or as death approaches. Quotations of last words may not be the words spoken immediately before death, as these tend to reflect the mode of death.
The last words reported to have been uttered by a person revered as a martyr or hero of a religious, nationalist, or revolutionary movement often gain a political significance and are extensively quoted in later literature and/or used as a slogan. However, in many such cases their historical authenticity is doubted.
Although intellectually we all know that one day we shall die, generally we are so reluctant to think of our death that this knowledge does not touch our hearts, and we live our life as if we were going to be in this world forever.
Last words can make quite an impact as we shuffle off the stage of life.
