Rhett Butler: One hundred and fifty dollars in gold.
Dr. Meade: For what lady, sir?
Rhett Butler: For Mrs. Charles Hamilton.
You turned me out while you chased Ashley Wilkes, while you dreamed of Ashley Wilkes. This is one night you’re not turning me out.
I’ve always admired Scarlett’s ability to do what must be done. She takes no prisoners in a way that I hope I don’t emulate, but like it or not she does what is necessary. Because I do see some of myself in Ashley’s mentality - the yearning for the past, living life in books (perhaps it’s our shared name, haha) - I try to temper my more fanciful tendencies with some of Scarlett’s tenacity and determination in the face of true obstacles. Gone With the Wind definitely piqued my interest in antebellum and Civil War era America as well.
Aww thank you!
Scarlett: Has India dared to -
Rhett: Yes, my dear, India has. Every woman in town knows the story, and every man too.
Scarlett: You should kill them for spreading lies!
Rhett: I have a strange way of not killing people who tell the truth.
Do you mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett O’Hara, that Tara, that land doesn’t mean anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin’ for, worth fightin’ for, worth dyin’ for, because it’s the only thing that lasts.
Aww thank you from the both of us! <3
