30 Day Book Challenge: Day 17 - Favorite quote from your favorite book

Gone with the Wind - Pat Conroy, Margaret Mitchell

"As God is my witness, and God is my witness, the Yankees aren't going to lick me. I'm going to live through this, and when it's over, I'm never going to be hungry again. No, nor any of my folks. If I have to steal or kill - as God is my witness, I'm never going to be hungry again.” - Gone with the Wind

 

This was a challenge for me because I don't usually commit quotes to memory and my favorite quotes from my favorite books don't sound that great out of context.  I'm much better with movie quotes so I cheated a little bit and chose a quote from Gone with the Wind, a movie I've seen multiple times.  I like this quote because it really shows Scarlett's strength, and epitomizes her will to survive.

 

Honorable Mention:

 

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!—When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” - Pride and Prejudice

 

This would be my favorite quote but it's said by a hateful character and she's only saying it to impress Mr. Darcy.
