Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He is always, always in my mind — not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.
Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living! You said I killed you — haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe — I know that ghosts have wandered on 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!
Emily Brontë, in Wuthering Heights
