Quotes Heather Liked

Emily Brontë
“I cannot express it; but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is or should be an existence of yours beyond you. What were the use of my creation, if I were entirely contained here? My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliff's miseries, and I watched and felt each from the beginning: my great thought in living is himself. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Emily Brontë
“Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you--haunt me then. The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe--I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always--take any form--drive me mad. Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Heidi Hard to believe with my love of classics, but I have to confess I've never read this, but your review is making me rethink that.

Heather It's fantastic, Heidi! I hope you will give it a try at some point. I first read this back in high school and have re-read it several times since then. I don't know what it is about the story, but I just love it! It's all doom and gloom and unhappy, brooding characters and yet it's one of my favorite comfort reads. LOL

Laura What are you reading next?

Heather I just started The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen. So far it seems to be a good mood/time of year fit. :)

Laura I've wanted to read that for awhile. Love her stuff. Enjoy it! ((((H))))

Heather Thanks, L! :) ((((L))))
