Famous last lines - 20th Jun 2018

Famous last lines You may have participated in our recent competition of name a book from its first line. Now we are doing the same with some very famous last lines. We will list a few here with answers given at the end (so no peeking). If you enjoy this sort of challenge, then also go to our Facebook page and try the daily closing line there - a bit more difficult than the ones here because they will all be from New Zealand literature. However, try these ones meanwhile:

"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."
"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
"The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."

And the quote which is on our Facebook page is "The Gun is in my hand and the rounds are ready for loading and I wish I had the guts to do it." 

Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities
Scott Fitzgerald Great Gatsby
George Orwell Animal Farm
