Audience Reviews for Wuthering Heights
- Mrs Linton: You left me, too, but I forgive you. Forgive me.
- Heathcliff: It's so hard... to forgive alone, it's a lie. Yes, I forgive what you've done to me. I love my murderer. But yours... how can I?
- Catherine Earnshaw: 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 is the eternal rock beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I AM Heathcliff!
- Heathcliff: Why did you betray your own heart, Cathy? You loved me. And what right had you to leave me? The poor fancy you felt for Linton? Nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us. You of your own will did it. I've not broken your heart Cathy, you have broken it. And in breaking it, you've broken mine.
