Literary Birthday - 30 July - Emily Bronte

Five Classic Emily Brontë Quotes

  1. He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
  2. I love the ground under his feet, and the air over his head, and everything he touches and every word he says. I love all his looks, and all his actions and him entirely and all together.
  3. Nature and books belong to the eyes that see them.
  4. Proud people breed sad sorrows for themselves.
  5. I’ve dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas: they’ve gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

Emily Brontë (30 July 1818 – 19 December 1848) wrote Wuthering Heights. She published under the pen name Ellis Bell.
