(view spoiler)

This pretty much sums this book up. It's dark, it's heavy and the heroes are self-destructive to the extreme. The emotions run high and the love story is tragic and sadly realistic, if a little dramatic. But different times, different use of the language and very different set of rules. Heathcliff's last words above speak volumes of the relationship between the two - the power Catherine has over him and the consequences of her actions.

Quotes Thenia Liked

Emily Brontë
“You teach me now how cruel you've been - cruel and false. Why did you despise me? Why did you betray your own heart, Cathy? I have not one word of comfort. You deserve this. You have killed yourself. Yes, you may kiss me, and cry; and wring out my kisses and tears: they'll blight you - they'll damn you. You loved me - what right had you to leave me? What right - answer me - for the poor fancy you felt for Linton? Because misery, and degradation, and death, and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you, of your own will did it. I have no broken your heart - you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine. So much the worse for me that I am strong. Do I want to live? What kind of living will it be when you - Oh, God! would you like to lie with your soul in the grave?”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Emily Brontë
“If he loved with all the powers of his puny being, he couldn't love as much in eighty years as I could in a day.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
