Beautiful 'Gone With The Wind' Quotes

These touching quotes from Gone with the Wind will make your heart skip a beat. Both the book by Margaret Mitchell and the movie will go down in history as one of America's greatest (or worst, in retrospect) love stories.

In the midst of the Civil War, the love between Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) was born. Oh, and we can't forget the role Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) played in the film.

Perhaps Gone with the Wind is most famous for its depiction of America's Old South, rather than its romantic vision. Either way, it's a total classic that we can't help but obsess over. Allow these heartwarming quotes to show you how real love can be.
