Margaret Mitchell quotes :
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken - and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.Margaret Mitchell
The world can forgive practically anything except people who mind their own business.Margaret Mitchell
Until you have lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is.Margaret Mitchell
