Leonard Nimoy died yesterday at the age of 83. His death was felt by friends and fans all over the world, and his final tweet added to that emotion. It was serendipitous of his passing, making him seem like the visionary Vulcan we have come to know an love.
“A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory…”.
However, Mr Nimoy was not the only one with memorable and thought provoking final statements.
Here are some of the final words of people who have come to effect and shape us in who we are. The Steve Jobs one really intrigued me…..
“Love one another” – George Harrison to Ringo Starr while on his deathbed.
“Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow….” immediately before his passing – Steve Jobs.
“Don’t be in such a hurry” – Billie Holiday.
“Are you ready? Ok. Let’s roll” – Todd Beamer – salesman on United Airlines 93 where passengers tried to take back control of plane on 9/11.
“I’ve had a hell of a time and enjoyed every minute” – Eroll Flynn.
Here’s one of Leonard’s last commercials which proved the man had a great sense of humor. FUNNY.
