20 CLASSIC LAST WORDS

I love books. But I never have time to read any more.

EW has an interesting slideshow devoted to twenty never to be forgotten volumes and the very last words in each of them.

Now this is a bit unexpected. Two of my all time favourites – THE GREAT GATSBY and WUTHERING HEIGHTS – are here. But they don’t actually move me or rock me to my core.

However, these do in an exceptional way…

GOODNIGHT MOON by MARGARET WISE BROWN
Goodnight stars; Goodnight air; Goodnight noises everywhere.

A TALE OF TWO CITIES by CHARLES DICKENS
It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

THE LONG GOODBYE by RAYMOND CHANDLER
I never saw any of them again – except for the cops. No way has yet been invented to say goodbye to them.

GONE WITH THE WIND by MARGARET MITCHELL
After all, tomorrow is another day.

And finally…

ULYSSES by JAMES JOYCE
I was a Flower of the mountain yes when I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought well as well him as another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.

Wow. That’s hot.

I couldn’t help myself. Had to end on an exotic irresistible bang. Nothing else could possibly do.
