Zitate Emily Brontë

Citát „Sie brannte zu hell für diese Welt.“

„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.“

—  Emily Brontë, buch Sturmhöhe

Heathcliff (Ch. XIV).
Quelle: Wuthering Heights (1847)
Kontext: I was a fool to fancy for a moment that she valued Edgar Linton's attachment more than mine; 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. And Catherine has a heart as deep as I have; the sea could be as readily contained in that house-trough as her whole affection be monopolized by him. Tush! He is scarcely a degree dearer to her than her dog, or her horse. It is not in him to be loved like me; how can she love in him what he has not?

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

—  Emily Brontë, buch Sturmhöhe

Variante: Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same
Quelle: Wuthering Heights

„She was a wild, wicked slip of a girl. She burned too brightly for this world.“

—  Emily Brontë, buch Sturmhöhe

Variante: She burned too bright for this world.
Quelle: Wuthering Heights

„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 can not find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I can not live without my life! I can not live without my soul!“

—  Emily Brontë, buch Sturmhöhe

Heathcliff (Ch. XVI).
Quelle: Wuthering Heights (1847)
Kontext: 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 can not find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I can not live without my life! I can not live without my soul!

„And yet I cannot continue in this condition! I have to remind myself to breathe — almost to remind my heart to beat!“

—  Emily Brontë, buch Sturmhöhe

Heathcliff (Ch. XXXIII).
Quelle: Wuthering Heights (1847)
Kontext: I have neither a fear, nor a presentiment, nor a hope of death. Why should I? With my hard constitution, and temperate mode of living, and unperilous occupations, I ought to, and probably shall remain above ground, till there is scarcely a black hair on my head. And yet I cannot continue in this condition! I have to remind myself to breathe — almost to remind my heart to beat! And it is like bending back a stiff spring — it is by compulsion that I do the slightest act, not prompted by one thought; and by compulsion that I notice anything alive or dead, which is not associated with one universal idea. I have a single wish, and my whole being and faculties are yearning to attain it. They have yearned towards it so long and so unwaveringly, that I’m convinced it will be reached — and soon — because it has devoured my existence. I am swallowed up in the anticipation of its fulfilment. My confessions have not relieved me — but they may account for some otherwise unaccountable phases of humour which I show. Oh, God! It's a long fight, I wish it were over!

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

—  Emily Brontë, buch Sturmhöhe

Nelly Dean (Ch. X).
Quelle: Wuthering Heights (1847)
Kontext: She seemed almost over fond of Mr. Linton; and even to his sister she showed plenty of affection. They were both very attentive to her comfort, certainly. It was not the thorn bending to the honeysuckles, but the honeysuckles embracing the thorn.
