Famous Last (Presidential) Words
The following quotes are allegedly the last recorded words of several Presidents before they died:
John Adams: “Thomas Jefferson still survives.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt: “I have a terrible headache.”
Theodore Roosevelt: “Please put out the light.”
James Madison: “I always talk better lying down.”
Warren G. Harding: “That’s good. Go on, read some more.”
Millard Fillmore: “The nourishment is palatable.”
Ulysses S. Grant: “Water.”
I’m not sure how Millard Fillmore died but it seems that he may have choked on his palatable nourishment.
