Tying both together:

"No man ever said, on his deathbed, 'I wish I had spent more time at the office...'"

_Lee Iacocca_ (Former chairman of Chrysler Corporation)

Checking around the web, most sources seem to attribute that quote to "a friend of Sen. Paul Tsongas" who decided to not stand for reelection to the Senate when he was diagnosed with cancer in 1984. There's apparently no videotape of Tsongas uttering the phrase.
