From the co-founder of Apple to “the Godfather of Soul,” some of the most legendary individuals have left behind parting words that will seriously give you goosebumps.
Here are some of the most iconic final phrases that have been confirmed, reported, and alleged.
Nostradamus: “You will not find me alive at sunrise.”
The French astrologer and physician became known for his prophecies throughout the 1500s. On the night before his death, he allegedly stated, “You will not find me alive at sunrise.” It is said to be his final accurate prediction.
James Brown: “I’m going away tonight.”
Brown, the “Godfather of Soul,” had been sick for several months before passing away from congestive heart failure in 2006. He reportedly told Charles Bobbit, his friend and manager, “I’m going away tonight,” according to CNN.
The singer died hours later.
Johnny Ace: “I’ll show you that it won’t shoot.”
During an intermission at one of his shows, the R&B singer went to his dressing room and began playing with a pistol. When others saw that he had a gun in his hand, Ace reportedly said, “I’ll show you that it won’t shoot.” He then pressed the pistol against his head and pulled the trigger, according to “Big Mama Thornton: The Life.”
