Emily Brontë
“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 Bronte, 20 Must Read Classic Romance Novels

“Taking a deep breath, he made a second attempt. “It’s so hard to let Claire go. Romantics are forever people.”
Thomas Allen
