Welcome to Season 3
“People say l am insensitive to peoples’ feelings and l don’t give a damn. That’s rubbish, l do, l give a damn about people who give a damn about themselves!”
“The most important progress and success can’t be seen. If you can validate yourself internally, then external validation becomes a byproduct.”
“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” is a line from the 1939 film Gone with the Wind starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh. The line is spoken by Rhett Butler (Gable), as his last words to Scarlett O’Hara (Leigh), in response to her tearful question: “Where shall I go? What shall I do?” Scarlett clings to the hope that she can win him back. This line is slightly different in Margaret Mitchell’s novel Gone with the Wind, published in 1936, from which the film is derived: “My dear, I don’t give a damn.”
The line demonstrates that Rhett has finally given up on Scarlett and their tumultuous relationship. After more than a decade of fruitlessly seeking her love, he no longer cares what happens to her.
