Gone With The Wind best dialogues
“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.”
“My life is over. Nothing will ever happen to me anymore.”
“I'll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again.”
“Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day!”

War! Isn't it exciting, Scarlett? You know those fool Yankees actually want a war?”
“I don't think I will kiss you, although you needkissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”
“Most of the miseries of the world were caused by wars. And when the wars were over, no one ever knew what they were about.”
I can shoot straight, if I don't have to shoot too far.”
