Words in the Week: Quote from Pancho Villa

I love to drink tea.  I really love to drink tea that has a quote on the string that attaches to the tea bag.  Most quotes I find at the end of my teabag are from philosophers or famous writers, not Mexican Revolutionary generals, so I was interested to see such a quote from Pancho Villa.

To me, Pancho Villa's life is immortalized and alive in the famous country song Pancho and Lefty that Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard once sang together.  In the song it says that "no-one heard his dying words," and yet here is another version of his last thoughts. 

The quote speaks of our human nature and desire to have something of value to say while we are on this Earth, no matter who we are.
