Humor as an indestructible force - Final Words

The fabled comedian Stan Laurel(of Laurel and Hardy fame)lay on his deathbed, in a deep coma. The nurse on vigil swears that the following occurred:
Without opening his eyes, Laurel muttered "I'd rather be skiing". The nurse was so startled, that through knee-jerk reaction she blurted "Do you ski, Mr. Laurel?"
His answer, and his last words were "No, but I'd rather be skiing."

The great composer Frederick Chopin passed away during his 39th year, and his final words were "I have been cursed with a short life and a long nose."
