Wuthering Heights




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.


Emily Bronte (Wuthering Heights)

  1. What do you mean by posting those words? Do you agree that there is a place more wonderful than heaven? Or do you mean something else? PLEASE tell. Your thoughts, principles, and beliefs never fail to inspire me and I always learn :) :)

    Anyway, what can you say about Catherine and Heathcliff's love? Did you ever dream of being in love the way they did? ...

    1. I love these words because they are the heart of the novel. I love Kathy's adoration of the moor and Wuthering Heights because of her dear Heathcliff.
      I don't think there are places greater than heaven, no I have never been to heaven so your guess is as good as mine. But I do know through God's word that it is greater than any beauty here, because there is nothing to hurt it or destroy it. But there are places that seem to touch eternity in their wonder and beauty. To me, Nature is the embodiment of God!

      I think their love beautiful and fierce and so strong. That's the best part- the grave cannot conquer it!

  2. Thank you so much for your reply! :)

    It's great that you also appreciate the fact that love could not be conquered even by death! Most people do not recognize that kind of love. Most people say things like "'Til death do us part." Or "I love you all my life."
    But what if life on earth is over? Does it mean that their love is ended?
    And their are many (or maybe not only some, but most ) husbands and wives who find it easy to marry again after their spouse has died.

    I believe (because it is what it is) that love is stronger than death. It does not mean that when 2 people passed away from this life, their love is over. It does not mean that when a person's spouse died, he could accept marrying again because his love for the first spouse is over. If a person's love is indeed stronger than death, then he would be loyal enough not to marry again just because his wife died.

    Yes, people may say the person has a right to be happy and therefore has the right to remarry. But surely if his love is so strong, it grows. It is not cut down just because of the death of his wife.And he is supposed to feel more happiness loving his wife in death, than loving someone new in life...

    I love the words you wrote: "I love Kathy's adoration of the moor and Wuthering Heights because of her dear Heathcliff." :)

    It is the unification of God, Nature, and the beloved :)
    The moor and Wuthering Heights is nature. And you wrote that nature is the embodiment of God. So nature and God is one. And God is love. So her love for Heathcliff is so strong that it is God's love. God is love. So in a sense, Nature, God, and her love for Heathcliff are all one :)
