Tuesday Trivia

Richard Lederer, in Literary Trivia, points out that sometimes it's harder to end a book than it is to begin one.

Can you identify the books with these notable endings?

"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."

"After all, tomorrow is another day."

"Villains! I shrieked, dissemble no more! I admit the deed! - - tear up the planks! - - here! here! - it is the beating of his hideous heart!"

"But I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ahead of the rest because Aunt Sally she's going to adopt me and sivilize me and I can't stand it. I been there before."

Here's the answer to last week's trivia question:
(Also from Richard Lederer's Literary Trivia)
