“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.”—Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
Heathcliff looks up at Nellie….
and almost tells her in the hold of glance…..now watch me destroy my Cathy for her betrayal of our love………
It’s all in the power of the glance and the length of that smug and piercing gaze…this is what we reference when we all talk about how Tom acts with his eyes…..no words necessary.
“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 Healthcliff! 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.”
One of the greatest lines of Wuthering Heights (2009).
