When It's All Said and Done

Some of the most insightful words are spoken by those closest to death.  I'm not being morbid, I'm making an observation.  When you're looking back over your life, you'll be in the wisest state of mind ever possible this side of eternity.  I am most touched by the following quotes given by men who were not saved, because it appears that as they are dying, the truth is finally dawning on them.  However, there are many quotes below by men who were saved and those are especially encouraging.  Live your life with a view toward eternity!
