Famous people's final words should be, well, famous. But since most people don't know which words will be their last, those final utterances can be revealing, touching or just odd.

Here’s the reported last words of some memorable people, from George Washington to Bob Marley to Princess Diana.

I suspect my last words will be similar to this old goat’s!         

             Winston Churchhill

Claim to fame: Considered one of history's greatest wartime leaders and statesmen as Britain's Prime Minister during World War II. (See photos) (Read some of his quotes)

Last words: "I'm bored with it all."

(d. Jan. 24, 1965)

How did he die?
