Margaret Mitchell

“In the end what will happen will be what has happened whenever a civilization breaks up. The people who have brains and courage come through and the ones who haven't are winnowed out. At least, it has been interesting, if not comfortable, to witness a Gotterdammerung.'

'A what?'

'A dusk of the gods. Unfortunately, we Southerners did think we were gods.”


Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind
