QUOTATION: 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 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.
ATTRIBUTION: Emily Brontë (1818–1848), British novelist, poet. Catherine, in Wuthering Heights, ch. 9 (1847).
