“Yes, by Christ! I do want you, and sicken for you. You're a poison in my blood, Scarlett, a sickness of my soul. I've known men with a hunger for opium that was like my hunger for you. I know what happens to an addict. He becomes enslaved, then destroyed. It almost happened to me, but I escaped. I won't risk it again. I won't destroy myself for you.”
