I was really excited to find the original source for Rhett Butler’s farwell off-to-the-wars speech to Scarlett at the Gone with the Wind Scrapbook Blog

“‘I could not love thee, Dear, so much, loved I not Honour more.’ That’s a pat speech, isn’t it? Certainly better than anything I can think up myself, at the present moment. For I do love you, Scarlett, in spite of what I said that night on the porch last month.”

Of thy chaste breasts, and quiet mind,
To war and arms I fly.

As you too shall adore;
I could not love thee, Dear, so much,
Loved I not honour more.
