Margaret Mitchell
“My dear, I don't give a damn.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Never pass up new experiences [Scarlett], They enrich the mind." - Rhett Butler”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“I loved something I made up, something that's just as dead as Melly is. I made a pretty suit of clothes and fell in love with it. And when Ashley came riding along, so handsome, so different, I put that suit on him and made him wear it whether it fitted him or not. And I wouldn't see what he really was. I kept on loving the pretty clothes—and not him at all.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Perhaps - I want the old days back again and they'll never come back, and I am haunted by the memory of them and of the world falling about my ears. ”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Dear Scarlett! You aren't helpless. Anyone as selfish and determined as you are is never helpless. God help the Yankees if they should get you." -Rhett Butler”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Sir,"she said,"you are no gentleman!"

An apt observation,"he answered airily."And, you, Miss, are no lady.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“I'd cut up my heart for you to wear if you wanted it.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Child, it's a very bad thing for a woman to face the worst that can happen to her, because after she's faced the worst she can't ever really fear anything again. ...Scarlett, always save something to fear— even as you save something to love...”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“I bare my soul and you are suspicious! No, Scarlett, this is a bona fide honorable declaration. I admit that it's not in the best of taste, coming at this time, but I have a very good excuse for my lack of breeding. I'm going away tomorrow for a long time and I fear that if I wait till I return you'll have married some one else with a little money. So I thought, why not me and my money? Really, Scarlett, I can't go all my life waiting to catch you between husbands. ”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Death, taxes and childbirth! There's never any convenient time for any of them.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“I've always had a weakness for lost causes once they're really lost.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Until you've lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“You're so brutal to those who love you, Scarlett. You take their love and hold it over their heads like a whip.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“And apologies, once postponed, become harder and harder to make, and finally impossible.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“No, my dear, I'm not in love with you, no more than you are with me, and if I were, you would be the last person I'd ever tell. God help the man who ever really loves you. You'd break his heart, my darling, cruel, destructive little cat who is so careless and confident she doesn't even trouble to sheathe her claws.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“Well, my dear, take heart. Some day, I will kiss you and you will like it. But not now, so I beg you not to be too impatient.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Margaret Mitchell
“That is the one unforgivable sin in any society. Be different and be damned!”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

I don’t think I could ever be that genuinely good and seeing such a selfless and good hearted person makes me feel evil. I don’t like that, so I hate her, I admire her and I envy her, all at the same time and with the same amount."
