Guess These Famous Last Words

Can you guess these classic titles by their last lines?


  1. "Tomorrow, I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day."
  2. "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.”
  3. "Oh, my girls, however long you may live, I never can wish you a greater happiness than this."
  4. "I lingered round them, under that benign sky; watched the moths fluttering among the heath, and hare-bells; listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquiet slumbers, for the sleepers in that quiet earth."
  5. "'God's in his heaven, all’s right with the world,' whispered Anne softly."
  6. “But, in spite of these deficiencies, the wishes, the hopes, the confidence, the predictions of the small band of true friends who witnessed the ceremony, were fully answered in the perfect happiness of the union.”
  7.  “But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs."
  8. "With the Gardiners, they were always on the most intimate terms. Darcy, as well as Elizabeth, really loved them, and they were both sensible of the warmest gratitude towards persons who, by bringing her into Derbyshire, had been the means of uniting them."
  9. “How shall I ever tell Aunt Shaw?” she whispered, after some time of delicious silence.
    “Let me speak to her.”
    “Oh, no! I owe to her,—but what will she say?”
    “I can guess. Her first exclamation will be, ‘That man!’”
    “Hush!' said Margaret, “or I shall try and show you your mother's indignant tones as she says, ‘That woman!’”
  10. “She gloried in being a sailor’s wife, but she must pay the tax of quick alarm for belonging to a profession which is, if possible, more distinguished in its domestic virtues than in it’s national importance.”

When you spend Christmas in a castle, anything is possible. 1860. Lady Alexandrina Gailey is looking forward to a cozy holiday at Windsor Castle with her best friend, Princess Alice, and her long-time crush, Lord George Worthington. But Drina's plans are all but dashed when Alice's parents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, declare that Alice must choose one of two royal princes to become engaged to before Christmas. There's just one problem: George, a junior member of the Foreign Office, has accidentally misplaced one of the princes. Together, Drina and George scour the town of Windsor for the missing prince, desperately hoping to deliver him to the royal dinner party with the queen and king none the wiser.
