We Must Hang Together Or We're Screwed 

I always liked Goethe's last words, which I understood to be "More light!" I found that poignant especially in the context of his observation that one always searches where there is light.

Now I read that the words actually were "Open the second shutter so that more light may come in."

That's like finding out that Wellington's post-action summary at Waterloo was really "Man, we almost got our asses handed to us."
