《飘》是美国作家玛格丽特·米切尔创作的长篇小说,该作1937年获得普利策文学奖。小说以亚特兰大以及附近的一个种植园为故事场景,描绘了内战前后美国南方人的生活。作品刻画了那个时代的许多南方人的形象,占中心位置的斯佳丽、瑞德、艾希礼、梅兰妮等人是其中的典型代表。他们的习俗礼仪、言行举止、精神观念、政治态度,通过对斯佳丽与白瑞德的爱情纠缠为主线,成功地再现了林肯领导的南北战争,美国南方地区的社会生活。以下是其经典金句赏析:

我从来不是那样的人,不能耐心的拾起一片碎片,把它们合在一起,然后对自己说这个修补好了的东西跟新的完全一样。一件东西破碎了就是破碎了,我宁愿记住它最好时的模样,而不想把它修补好,然后终生看着那些破碎了的地方。

I want you well and play, play well like a child - because you really are a child, suffered shock but still a brave and stubborn child.
我一直照料你,宠爱你,你要什么我都给你。我想和你结婚,以保护你,让你处处自由,事事称心——就像后来我对美蓝那样。因为你曾经经历过一番拼搏,斯佳丽。没有谁比我更清楚地知道你曾受过怎样的磨难,所以我希望你能停止战斗,让我替你战斗下去。我想让你好好的玩耍,像个孩子似的好好玩耍—因为你确实是个孩子,一个受过惊吓但仍然勇敢而倔强的孩子。
