I want the triumph of seeing my descendant fairly lord of their estates; my child hiring their children to till their fathers' lands for wages.

'I know he has a bad nature,' said Catherine: 'he's your son... Mr. Heathcliff you have nobody to love you ... You are miserable, are you not? Lonely, like the devil, and envious like him?...'
