Margaret Mitchell

The south produced statesmen and soldiers, planters and doctors and lawyers and poets, but certainly no engineers and mechanics. Let Yankees adopt such low callings. [Gone With The Wind]More Margaret Mitchell [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I want peace. I want to see if somewhere there isn't something left in life of charm and grace.More Margaret Mitchell [07/26/2011 06:07:10]
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken - and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.More Margaret Mitchell [07/26/2011 06:07:25]
Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect.More Margaret Mitchell [07/26/2011 06:07:56]

There ain't nothing from the outside that can lick any of us.More Margaret Mitchell [07/26/2011 06:07:36]
What most people don't seem to realize is that there is just as much money to be made out of the wreckage of a civilization as from the upbuilding of one.More Margaret Mitchell [07/26/2011 06:07:49]
With enough courage, you can do without a reputation.More Margaret Mitchell [07/26/2011 06:07:55]

Fighting is like champagne. It goes to the heads of cowards as quickly as of heroes. Any fool can be brave on a battlefield when it's be brave or else be killed.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Until you've lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Somewhere, on the long road that wound through those four years, the girl with her sachet & dancing slippers had slipped away & there was left a woman with sharp green eyes, who counted pennies & turned her hands to many menial tasks, a woman to whom nothing was left from the wreckage except the indestructible red earth on which she stood.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If Gone With the Wind has a theme it is that of survival. What makes some people come through catastrophes and others, apparently just as able, strong, and brave, go under? It happens in every upheaval. Some people survive; others don't. What qualities are in those who fight their way through triumphantly that are lacking in those that go under? I only know that survivors used to call that quality 'gumption.' So I wrote about people who had gumption and people who didn't.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I can't make you understand because you don't know the meaning of fear. You have the heart of a lion and an utter lack of imagination and I envy you both of those qualities. You'll never mind facing realities and you'll never want to escape from them as I do.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm not asking you to forgive me. I'll never understand or forgive myself. And if a bullet gets me, so help me, I'll laugh at myself for being an idiot. There's one thing I do know... and that is that I love you, Scarlett. In spite of you and me and the whole silly world going to pieces around us, I love you. Because we're alike. Bad lots, both of us. Selfish and shrewd. But able to look things in the eyes as we call them by their right names.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
men are so conceited they’ll believe anything that flatters themMore Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I loved something I made upMore Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What’s broken is broken—and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I live…I’m too old to believe in such sentimentalities as clean slates and starting all over.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken - and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.More Margaret Mitchell [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
