Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Peace had failed her and Ashley had failed her, both in the same day, and it was as if the last crevice in the shell had been sealed, the final layer hardened. She had.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Give me a good horse to ride and some good licker to drink and a good girl to court and a bad girl to have fun with and anybody can have their own Europe... What do we care about missing the tour?”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “She raised her chin and her pale, black-fringed eyes sparkled in the moonlight. Ellen had never told her that desire and attainment were two different matters; life had not taught her that the race was not to the swift. She lay in the silvery shadows with courage rising and made the plans that a sixteen-year-old makes when life has been so pleasant that defeat is an impossibility and a pretty dress and a clear complexion are weapons to vanquish fate.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “I’ve got something that most pretty ladies haven’t got – and that’s a mind that’s made up.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Fo’ Gawd, Miss Scarlett! We’s got ter have a doctah. Ah- Ah- Miss Scarlett, Ah doan know nuthin’ ‘bout bringin’ babies. -Prissy.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “He doesn’t want your mind, the fool, and I don’t want your body. I can buy women cheap. But I do want your mind and your heart, and I’ll never have them, any more than you’ll ever have Ashley’s mind. And that’s why I’m sorry for you.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Well fiddle dee dee!”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “He knew that she took life as it came, opposed her tough-fibered mind to whatever obstacles there might be, fought on with a determination that would not recognize defeat, and kept on fighting even when she saw defeat was inevitable.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “He was so tender, so infinitely soothing, she longed to stay in his arms forever. With such strong arms about her, surely nothing could harm her.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Influence is everything, and guilt or innocence merely an academic question.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “This is what happens when you look back to happiness, this pain, this heart-break, this discontent.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Drink and dissipation had done their work on the coin-clean profile and now it was no longer the head of a young pagan prince on new-minted gold but a decadent, tired Caesar on copper debased by long usage.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Why be an ostrich?”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “It was not the lifting up of her heart to God that brought this balm, for religion went no more than lip deep with her. It was the sight of her mother’s serene face upturned to the throne of God and His saints and angels, praying for blessings on those whom she loved. When Ellen intervened with Heaven, Scarlett felt certain that Heaven heard. Ellen.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Most of the misery of the world has been caused by wars. And when the wars were over, no one ever knew what they were all about.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “She only did – did what she felt she had to do. And our men did what they felt they had to do. People must do what they must do. We don’t all think alike or act alike and it’s wrong to – to judge others by ourselves.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “She knew she had changed too, but not as they had changed, and it puzzled her. She sat and watched them and she felt herself an alien among them, as alien and lonely as if she had come from another world, speaking a language they did not understand and she not understanding theirs.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “He said nothing in the world was worth what this war was going to do to us. He said there wasn’t anything at all to glory – it was just misery and dirt.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Well, none of us, as far as I can see, are doing what we intended to do right now, but I think we’ll make out just the same. It’s a poor person and a poor nation that sits down and cries because life isn’t precisely what they expected it to be.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Talking to Rhett was comparable only to one thing, the feeling of ease and comfort afforded by a pair of old slippers after dancing in a pair too tight.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “She had never understood either of the men she had loved and so she had lost them both. Now, she had a fumbling knowledge that, had she ever understood Ashley, she would never have loved him; had she ever understood Rhett, she would never have lost him.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “I’ve felt that I was trying to row a heavily loaded boat in a storm. I’ve had so much trouble just trying to keep afloat that I couldn’t be bothered about things that didn’t matter, things I could part with easily and not miss, like good manners and – well, things like that. I’ve been too afraid my boat would be swamped and so I’ve dumped overboard the things that seemed least important.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “You’re a pretty person, Scarlett,” he said. “Especially when you are meditating devilment.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “It’s not because I’ve -what is the phrase? -‘swept you off your feet’ by my -er- ardor?”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “They were all beautiful with the blinding beauty that transfigures even the plainest woman when she is utterly protected and utterly loved and is giving back that love a thousandfold.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Suddenly she felt strong and happy. She was not afraid of the darkness or the fog and she knew with a singing in her heart that she would never fear them again. No matter what mists might curl around her in the future, she knew her refuge. She started briskly up the street toward home and the blocks seemed very long. Far, far too long. She caught up her skirts to her knees and began to run lightly. But this time she was not running from fear. She was running because Rhett’s arms were at the end of the street.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Oh, what a mess life was! Why had she been such an idiot as to marry Charles of all people and have her life end at sixteen?”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “You must not interrupt gentlemen when they are speaking, even if you do think you know more about matters than they do. Gentlemen do not like forward girls.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Hush,” he said. “I am asking you to marry me. Would you be convinced if I knelt down?”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “You’re a heartless creature but that’s part of your charm. Though you’ve got more charm than the law allows.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “He looked on people, and he neither liked nor disliked them. He looked on life and was neither heartened nor saddened. He accepted the universe and his place in it for what they were and, shrugging, turned to his music and books and his better world.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “It’s hard to be strict with a man who loses money so pleasantly.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “A new baby! Why, Scarlett, this is a surprise!” he laughed, leaning down to push the blanket away from Ella Lorena’s small ugly face.” – Rhett Butler.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “It was unreal, grotesquely unreal, that morning skies which dawned so tenderly blue could be profaned with cannon smoke that hung over the town like low thunder clouds, that warm noontides filled with the piercing sweetness of massed honeysuckle and climbing roses could be so fearful, as shells screamed into the streets, bursting like the crack of doom, throwing iron splinters hundreds of yards, blowing people and animals to bits.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Oh, I don’t care! I don’t care what they say!” she whispered, as a sweet madness swept over her.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Come, Scarlett, you are no child, no schoolgirl to put me off with foolish excuses about decency and so forth. Say you’ll marry me when I come back or, before God, I won’t go. I’ll stay around here and play a guitar under your window every night and sing at the top of my voice and compromise you, so you’ll have to marry me to save your reputation.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “She was less frightened also because life had taken on the quality of a dream, a dream too terrible to be real. It wasn’t possible that she, Scarlett O’Hara, should be in such a predicament, with the danger of death about her every hour, every minute. It wasn’t possible that the quiet tenor of life could have changed so completely in so short a time.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “So I think I’ll remove him from your mind forever, this way. I’ll put my hands, so, on each side of your head and I’ll smash your skull between them like a walnut and that will blot him out.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “In the nine years before Scarlett was born, the town had been called, first, Terminus and then Marthasville, and not until the year of Scarlett’s birth had it become Atlanta. When Gerald first moved to north Georgia, there had been no Atlanta at all, not even the semblance of a village, and wilderness rolled over the site.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Let’s don’t be too hot headed and let’s don’t have any war. Most of the misery of the world has been caused by wars. And when the wars were over, no one ever knew what they were all about.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Once, when she was six years old, she had fallen from a tree, flat on her stomach. She could still recall that sickening interval before breath came back into her body. Now, as she looked at him, she felt the same way she had felt then, breathless, stunned, nauseated.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “You have all the passion for life I lack.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “In the excitement of trying on dresses she had forgotten Mammy’s ironclad rule that, before going to any party, the O’Hara girls must be crammed so full of food at home they would be unable to eat any refreshments at the party.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Melly is the only woman friend I ever had,” she thought forlornly, “the only woman except Mother who really loved me. She’s like Mother, too. Everyone who knew her has clung to her skirts.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “It was one thing to know that Ashley was engaged but it was another to hear people talk about it so casually.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “That was a neat way of smoothing a man’s vanity and yet keeping him on the string, and Charles rose to it as though such bait were new and he the first to swallow it.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “The best marriages are when the parents choose for the girl. For how can a silly piece like yourself tell a good man from a scoundrel?”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “War and marriage and childbirth had passed over her without touching any deep chord within her and she was unchanged.”
Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Then he had thought it all beyond her mental grasp and it had been pleasant to explain things to her.

Margaret Mitchell Quote: “Better to be tormented with memories of Ashley than Charleston accents.”
