The MMOB Daily Quote - Wild Bill Hickok

James Butler Hickok (May 27, 1837 – August 2, 1876)

And here are today's quotes from Wild Bill.

“The dead man's hand.”

“He's a very nice man. Big. I mean bigger than life.”

"Agnes Darling, if such should be we never meet again, while firing my last shot, I will gently breathe the name of my wife - Agnes - and with wishes even for my enemies I will make the plunge and try to swim to the other shore."

"My dearly beloved if I am to die today and never see the sweet face of you I want you to know that I am no great man and am lucky to have such a woman as you."

Cheers! - Jason
