Wuthering Heights

One of the many, many quotes that I consider to be the best ever and capture something about my soul (there are so many...they all bounce around in my head constantly, and both drive me crazy and keep me sane).

Also, before I share the awesomeness, I need to brag and say that I am going to double major in Philosophy and English Literature, and minor in Environmental Studies. Which means I'm going to have a ton of work every semester. But at least I'm working towards a goal! Yay!

Ok here you go:

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. Nelly, 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.

Oh, my! What a beautiful quote. And, I'm so impressed by your double major + minor! Sounds like a great combination of disciplines. :-)
