  1. June 30, 1936: Gone with the Wind, was published 77 years ago today. πŸ™‚

  2. Great quote. Sure does take the pressure off. (of having to be something or someone). But, does require overcoming inertia from fear of stretching into new areas. That’s my Achilles heel and challenge in life, having more courage.

  3. Courage, that’s all you need!

  4. Amazing woman. Clearly ahead of her time.

  5. Love this quote and love the surprise at hearing it’s from Margaret Mitchell. Cool!

  6. One of my very favorite books!

  7. I read Gone With The Wind when I was in the 7th grade and absolutely loved it. What a brilliant quote. Thank you for sharing.
