As human beings, we are slightly fascinated with the life and death of the rich and famous. There’s just something about the people who have led far more extraordinary lives then those of us who have never left the small town we were born in. Is this some kind of measure of life? Probably not. In any case, take a look at this list of some of the most famous people who have left a huge mark on this world, and their final words.
Known as “The People’s Princess”, Princess Diana was full of compassion and charisma, her style and high-profile charity work have long influenced generations. She was a true shining example of an unstoppable woman with her heart on her sleeve. After her death in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997, people all over the globe deeply mourned the beloved Princess.
While there are many who spew conspiracy beliefs that her accident was planned, nothing has ever been proven. The day of the crash, a firefighter who was on the scene, reported that Princess Diana’s last words were, “Oh my god.”
Perhaps one of the most haunting last words on this list. John Lennon, if you didn’t know is a Beatles legend who had undeniable talent as a singer and songwriter. He transformed the music world as we know it.
His final words were, “Yes I am,” in response to being asked by his assassin/murderer to confirm his identity. Chilling, isn’t it? What a tragedy.
