35 best romantic quoted from wuthering heights novel

Wuthering Heights is an 1847 published romantic tragedy novel written by Emily Brontë. This book is a whole package of emotions and expressions. From happiness to sorrow, cruelty to generosity, love to hatred, this book combines all the shades. It is the story of orphaned Heathcliff and how a simple, sudden betrayal from the love of his life changed him completely into a whole new person, showing a whole new side of his which wasn’t very pleasant to behold.

I found this book while randomly strolling through the library. It dated way back in the time, so I wasn’t sure about reading it at first, but I am so glad I did. Even though it’s old, it doesn’t feel old. It doesn’t fail to give chills even to the latest generations. I had such a great time reading this book that I am having difficulty getting over it. At some point, I was all in awe, somewhere I cringed, and somewhere I cried. This novel, Wuthering Heights, has become one of those close to my heart.

Mr. Earnshaw adopts Heathcliff after the death of his wife. He already has two kids, Hindley and Catherine. While Hindley despises Heathcliff, Catherine becomes fond of him and grows closer, both emotionally and romantically. Heathcliff loves Catherine beyond anything, but Catherine gets betrayed when she gets engaged to Edger Linton impulsively, driven by a sudden rush of infatuation. Heathcliff goes crazy over this and seeks revenge on anyone and everyone who has wronged him.

Despite being a heart-wrenching tragedy, Wuthering Heights is a beyond romantic book. The feelings of love, betrayal, and revenge have been depicted so strongly that you will be struggling to catch your breath while reading it. I’ve read the entire book and I’d be more than happy to share some of the best romantic quotes from Wuthering Heights novel to give you a glimpse inside the book.

35 Romantic Quotes From The Novel Wuthering Heights

While I was reading the book, after every crazy romantic line that occurred, I wondered if I could witness someone saying something like that in real life. I am so obsessed with these quotes and lines that I can’t even put them in words. Let me share them with you.


“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”


“I have not broken your heart – you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine.”


“My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliff’s miseries, and I watched and felt each from the beginning: my great thought in living is himself.”


 “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 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.”


“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.”


“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!”


“I gave him my heart, and he took and pinched it to death; and flung it back to me.”


“People feel with their hearts, Ellen, and since he has destroyed mine, I have not power to feel for him.”


“If you ever looked at me once with what I know is in you, I would be your slave.”


“You teach me now how cruel you’ve been – cruel and false. Why did you despise me? Why did you betray your own heart, Cathy? I have not one word of comfort. You deserve this. You have killed yourself.”


“You may kiss me, and cry; and wring out my kisses and tears: they’ll blight you – they’ll damn you. You loved me – what right had you to leave me? What right – answer me – for the poor fancy you felt for Linton?”


“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?”


“Misery, and degradation, and death, and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you, of your own will did it.”


“I have to remind myself to breathe — almost to remind my heart to beat!”


“It was not the thorn bending to the honeysuckles, but the honeysuckles embracing the thorn.”


“It is hard to forgive, and to look at those eyes, and feel those wasted hands”


“Kiss me again; and don’t let me see your eyes! I forgive what you have done to me. I love my murderer—but yours! How can I?”


“Heaven did not seem to be my home; and I broke my heart with weeping to come back to earth; and the angels were so angry that they flung me out into the middle of the heath on the top of Wuthering Heights; where I woke sobbing for joy.”


“He wanted all to lie in an ecstasy of peace; I wanted all to sparkle and dance in a glorious jubilee. I said his heaven would be only half alive; and he said mine would be drunk: I said I should fall asleep in his; and he said he could not breathe in mine.”


“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.”


“You know that I could as soon forget you as my existence!”


 “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.”


“In every cloud, in every tree-filling the air at night, and caught by glimpses in every object, by day I am surrounded with her image!”


“Are you possessed with a devil, ‘to talk in that manner to me when you are dying? Do you reflect that all those words will be branded in my memory, and eating deeper eternally after you have left me?”


 “You are welcome to torture me to death for your amusement, only allow me to amuse myself a little in the same style, and refrain from insult as much as you are able.”


“However miserable you make us, we shall still have the revenge of thinking that your cruelty arises from your greater misery.”


“Pray, don’t imagine that he conceals depths of benevolence and affection beneath a stern exterior!”


“He’s not a rough diamond, a pearl containing oyster of a rustic: he’s a feirce, pitiless, wolfish man.”


“She could be soft and mild as a dove, and she had a gentle voice and pensive expression: her anger was never furious; her love never fierce; it was deep and tender.”


“You know as well as I do, that for every thought she spends on Linton she spends a thousand on me!”


“My confessions have not relieved me; but they may account for some otherwise unaccountable phases of humour which I show. O God! It is a long fight; I wish it were over!”


“Catherine has a heart as deep as I have: the sea could be as readily contained in that horse-trough as her whole affection be monopolized by him…It is not in him to be loved like me”


“The intimacy thus commenced grew rapidly; though it encountered temporary interruptions. Earnshaw was not to be civilized with a wish, and my young lady was no philosopher, and no paragon of patience; but both their minds tending to the same point—one loving and desiring to esteem, and the other loving and desiring to be esteemed—they contrived in the end to reach it.”


“I pray every night that I may live after him; because I would rather be miserable than that he should be- that proves I love him better than myself.”
