Rhett Butler contradicting himself like a boss.
"I only saw Vivien Leigh once in my life in person. That was at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston. I got into the elevator and she was there. And I got goose pimples. I got off on the third floor, like a fool. The goose pimples remained for ten minutes, which I am told, is a medical phenomenon." —Walter Matthau
Favourite Characters (in no particular order): Scarlett O’Hara
"Great balls of fire! Don’t bother me anymore, and don’t call me sugar!"
"If the novel has a theme it is that of survival. What makes some people able to 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 who go under…? I only know that the survivors used to call that quality ‘gumption.’ So I wrote about the people who had gumption and the people who didn’t.” — Margaret Mitchell, 1936
