I have long been intrigued Augmentin For Sale, with the final words uttered by those on their actual or figurative deathbeds. The trouble, of course, is that you never know if the words were spontaneous or rehearsed, whether they were really spoken aloud or were conjured up after the fact by someone who hoped to gain for himself a piece of anonymous immortality by acting as a giving-up-the-ghost writer. 30mg Augmentin, While I have no way of vouching for their authenticity, I regard the following farewells as among the most memorable, Augmentin overseas. 10mg Augmentin, Henry Ward Beecher said, "Now comes the mystery, Augmentin japan, Augmentin coupon, " although I would have thought "Now comes the solution to the mystery" the more appropriate assumption on the part of the notable preacher.
Heinrich Heine, 100mg Augmentin, Augmentin uk, a rather presumptuous fellow even for a German poet, insisted, 50mg Augmentin, Augmentin canada, "God will pardon me. It is his trade."
Humphrey Bogart mused, "I should have never switched from Scotch to martinis, 500mg Augmentin, Augmentin usa, " although a wiser decision regarding his vices would have been to kick the nicotine habit before it kicked him.
Luther Burbank, 1000mg Augmentin, Augmentin craiglist, the noted horticulturist, might have been expected to come up with something a little more flowery than "I don't feel good" if he had only known how just far from good he really felt, 200mg Augmentin.
Dylan Thomas, who seems to have been a rather competitive sort of fellow for a sot, boasted, "I have just had 18 whiskeys in a row. I do believe that is a record."
Robert E, Augmentin For Sale. Augmentin australia, Lee, a military genius who never wasted ammunition or words, Augmentin mexico, 150mg Augmentin, took his leave with the brisk "Strike the tent."
Another Civil War general, John Sedgwick, Augmentin india, Augmentin paypal, while commanding Union forces at the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse, put southern snipers in their place by telling his cowering troops, 750mg Augmentin, Augmentin ebay, "They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance" a moment before they put him in his final resting place. It was Gen. Sedgwick's misfortune that the Rebs didn't happen to be hunting elephants that day, 20mg Augmentin. Augmentin us, Oscar Wilde confessed that he and his wallpaper were fighting a duel to the death and "One or the other of us has to go." Alas, the wallpaper won and got to hang around a while longer, 250mg Augmentin. 40mg Augmentin, When a French priest urged Voltaire, a committed atheist to renounce Satan, the old philosopher replied, "This is no time to make new enemies."
A very witty line, but in strictly practical terms, it's hard to beat convicted murderer James W. Bridges, who, when asked if he had a final request before facing a firing squad, replied, "Why, yes, a bulletproof vest."
Still, when it comes to send-offs, you'd have a go a long way to top the one that Charlotte McCourt's family came up with recently. After the passing of the longtime Nevada resident, her children published an obituary that read: "We believe that mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to the U.S. Congress. Let the record show that Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate."
In my own case, I plan to get to work immediately on some amusing, yet profound and touching, final words. My greatest fear is that before having the opportunity to deliver them, I will slip in the shower and in that nano-second prior to fatally conking my head on the porcelain, I will take leave of the world with an inexcusably trite "Whoops!"
