* "''Arriba -- siempre arriba.''" ("Higher -- ever higher."): Jorge Chavez, a Franco-Peruvian who was the first man to fly over the Alps, and suffered mortal injuries while trying to land on that flight. This phrase is the motto of the Peruvian Air Force.



* "Okay, just wondering." NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt's final known radio communication (towards his Rolex 24 teammate Andy Pilgrim) during the 2001 Daytona 500. He was killed in a crash on the final lap of the race.



* "We'll see each other in [[Myth/NorseMythology Valhalla]]!" - Luftwaffe ace pilot Heinrich Ehrler. He had been court-martialed and sentenced to death for failing to protect the battleship ''Tirpitz'' from British bombers, [[VetinariJobSecurity but due to his talent as a fighter ace the punishment had been switched to imprisonment and delayed]]. By April 4, 1945, he was psychologically broken and the war was lost. After shooting two B-24 Liberator bombers from his [[CoolPlane Me-262 jet fighter]], [[HeroicSacrifice he set the fighter on a collision course to the third bomber]] and radioed to his wingman: ''"Theo. Ich habe keine Munition mehr. Ich werde diesen da rammen. Auf Wiedersehen. Wir sehen uns in Walhalla!"'' - "Theo, I'm out of ammo. I'm going to ram this one. Goodbye. We'll see each other in Valhalla."



* The two versions of the last lines of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnamese communist revolutionary, run as following:
** From the partially released last will and testament upon his death in 1969: ''But who can guess how much longer I can serve the revolution, serve the homeland, and serve the people? Thus I leave you these few words, in case I should join Karl Marx, Lenin, and my predecessors in revolution, so my countrymen, Party comrades, and friends everywhere shall not feel it so sudden.''
** From the full version: ''My last wish is: Our entire Party, our entire people shall be as one in striving to build a peaceful, united, independent, democratic, strong and prosperous, contributing our fair part in the enterprise of world revolution.''



* "Tell Hill he must come up. Strike the tent." -- Robert E. Lee, Jackson's old commander, dying of heart disease in 1870. His subordinate general, A. P. Hill, who had replaced Jackson in 1863, had been killed in action a month before the end of the Civil War in 1865.

* "Daddy flight. Save your auxiliary fuel tanks". [[AcePilot Fighter ace]] Thomas [=McGuire=], 1945. He attempted to dogfight a Japanese Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa with P-38 Lightning. Dropping auxiliary fuel tanks is a standard procedure in such situation - and that particular Hayabusa was flown by Akira Sugimoto, a flight teacher with 3,000 hours on that type. During the dogfight, [=McGuire=] attempted to shake Sugimoto at low altitude, but the extra weight of the fuel tanks caused his plane to stall out and crash, killing him instantly.

* "We are holding our own." -- Captain Ernest M. [=McSorley=], 17 minutes before the SS ''Edmund Fitzgerald'' (the very same vessel immortalized in Creator/GordonLightfoot's famous song) sank with all hands. While it's likely that he said other things before he died, these were the last words he transmitted to SS ''Arthur M. Anderson,'' and so his last ''recorded'' words.[[note]]The ''Fitzgerald'' and the ''Anderson'' were both trying to escape the storm by making it to the safety of Whitefish Bay. [=McSorley=] had previously reported that the ''Fitzgerald'' was listing and taking on water. A few minutes after that last radio communication the ''Fitzgerald'' sank, so quickly that no distress call was sent.[[/note]]



* "Get my 'Swan' costume ready," then (after a few gestures) "Play that last measure very softly." -- Anna Pavlova, the famous Russian ballerina. She was referring to the famous dance and role she created of [[https://youtu.be/pIqh7x1oU2o?t=1m10s The Dying Swan]].

* "What? ''What?''" - Tsar Nicholas II [[TsaristRussia Romanov]] of Russia, after being told he and his whole family would be executed to solidify Communist rule and prevent a possible restoration. The royal family was massacred by a firing squad seconds later; this includes the 13-year old heir to the throne, Alexei, who survived the first salvo and was [[WouldHurtAChild personally finished off with a couple more headshots from the captain]] before the family was unceremoniously buried in a pit.



* "For the Holy Father! Our Lady, Our Lady, holy angels, Heart of Jesus, Heart of Jesus! We are going, we are going." Lucia Santos, the last of the three children who saw Our Lady of Fatima in 1917. She was 97 years old. Mary had told her her little cousins would die "soon" (they did, within two years) but that Lucia would stay "a while longer". The words are common short prayers among Fatima devotees. When the mother superior asked "Where are you going?" she replied "To heaven, with Our Lord, and Our Lady, and the little shepherds" (meaning her cousins).



* "I'm losing." -- Music/FrankSinatra, just prior to having a fatal heart attack.



* "I'm going to be with Gloria now." Creator/JamesStewart, talking about his wife who'd preceded him in death.



* "Not like this, don't leave like this." The last words Layne Staley, lead singer of Alice in Chains, spoke to his bandmate Mike Starr before he left him after arguing with him. Starr was the last person to see him alive. Staley died the next day from a drug overdose.



* "It's all my fault." -- Admiral Sir George Tryon, before drowning after his flagship was accidentally rammed during a precision maneuver in which he misjudged the distance in which his fleet's two columns could turn in on each other without colliding. It really was mostly his fault.
* "Ein davar, tov lamoot bead artzenu." (It does not matter, it is good to die for our country.) -- Joseph Trumpeldor, a Jewish settler, at the Battle of Tel Hai (1920), after being asked how he feelt by a doctor while bleeding.

* The infamous "Boss" W.M. Tweed [[https://www.nytimes.com/packages/html/books/boss-tweed-obit.pdf said]] on his deathbed in jail: "They will be satisfied now."



* "Don't pull down the blinds. I feel fine!", then to his doctor, "Don't worry, chief. I will be all right." Rudolph Valentino, dying of peritonitis. He didn't know it and thought he was just having minor complications from ulcer surgery.



* "Too bad you can only live so long!" Five minutes into Leos Janáček's ''The Makropoulos Case'', {{Opera}} tenor Richard Versalle sang these words and dropped dead of a heart attack on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. He was 63.



* ''"Gioia, o gioia!"'' On March 5, 1960, {{Opera}} baritone Leonard Warren sang these words and fell dead, also on the Metropolitan Opera stage. It was a cerebral hemorrhage. He was 48. He had just completed an aria that begins with the words ''Morir! Tremenda cosa!'' (To die, a tremendous thing!)



* "Just don't talk, please don't talk / Don't you talk about me when I'm gone!" Edith Webster, playing Grandmother in the stage play ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Drunkard The Drunkard]]'' (probably the Brian Burton musical parody version) November 22, 1986 at the Towson Moose Lodge in Baltimore, sang "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone." Grandmother is ''supposed'' to die when she completes this song. Webster dropped dead on stage amid enthusiastic applause. When the stagehands started calling for help, the audience thought it was part of the play.



* "Now I'll find out what happened to Catherine!" Dr. William Asa Winters, father of [[http://www.whereiscatherinewinters.com/ Catherine Winters]], who vanished in March 1913 at the age of nine. He never stopped looking for her.
* "It's a fallacy to think that Hitler was the cause of the world's present woes. Germany was the cause of Hitler." Playwright and CausticCritic [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Woollcott#Death_and_legacy Alexander Woollcott]][[note]]Today's audiences likely know him mostly from his portrayal in ''Theatre/TheManWhoCameToDinner''[[/note]] spoke these words at a radio panel show, ''The People's Platform''. He then stopped, and wrote the words "I am sick." He had suffered a massive heart attack along with a cerebral hemorrhage. He died in hospital a few hours later.
