Those legendary Last Words.

“A nurse from the hospice told me 
that the last words of the dying tended to be the same: 
almost everyone calls for (or out to) their mother* with their last breath.”

- Hajo Schumacher in Der Spiegel.

*As a greeting ?

"L'enfer, c'est les autres." "Hell is where we consign others." - J-P Sartre.



" Mais « l'enfer c'est les autres » a été toujours mal compris. On a cru que je voulais dire par là que nos rapports avec les autres étaient toujours empoisonnés, que c'était toujours des rapports infernaux. Or, c'est tout autre chose que je veux dire. Je veux dire que si les rapports avec autrui sont tordus, viciés, alors l'autre ne peut être que l'enfer." - J-P Sartre.

you've shot 'em both,
and then it's too late"
