Quotes:

-- Gone with the Wind
Mammy to Scarlett O'Hara

-- Apple's America
R.W. Apple Jr.

Savannah is sleeping amid its baskets of azaleas.
-- America Day by Day
Simone de Beauvoir

I stood agog in Lafayette Square in Savannah, amid brick paths, trickling fountains and dark trees hung with Spanish moss.

I did not know that such perfection existed in America.
-- The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America
Bill Bryson
