I’ve been thinking about Ethan and Josephine, and how much I love a rogue of a man in literature, and of course, my thoughts turned to Rhett Butler, and how he set the bar.
So, in honor of my most loved Southern “rogue” gentleman in literature, here are a few of my favorite quotes from Mr. Rhett Butler –
- With enough courage, you can do without a reputation.
- No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.
- You still think you’re the cutest trick in shoe leather.
- Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
I could quote the novel, since I think all of his dialogue is wonderful, but I’ll stop here.
