yeah, beethoven was rad
'plaudite, amici, commedia finita est'
meaning 'applaud, my friends, the comedy is over', were the last words of german composer ludwig van beethoven, who was very well known, mostly because he became deaf when he was about twenty-eight. and that, in essence, was what his life was, a comedy. i cannot say that i idolise him, but he is also one of my favourite historical figures, right there with grigori rasputin and frida kahlo, so. i love reading people's last words, and i remember the good ones :)
