"He shall never know I love him: and that, not because he’s handsome, but because he’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made out of, his and mine are the same."

~Catherine, about Heathcliff

"I have not broken your heart- you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine."

~Heathcliff to Catherine

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!"

~Heathcliff to late Catherine

"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."

~Catherine, about Heathcliff

"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?"

~Heathcliff to Catherine

"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 a pleasure to myself, but as my own being."

~Catherine, about Heathcliff

"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."

~Heathcliff, about Edgar Linton’s love for Catherine
