7 Romantic Quotes from Literary Classics ...


As a sucker for romance, I have found that some of the greatest quotes from literary classics come from romantic stories. Of course, as someone who grew up in Yorkshire, Wuthering Heights is at the top of my list. Still, romantic quotes from literary classics don’t begin and end with Emily Bronte. In fact, there are many floating around out there in the world of literature.

1. Wuthering Heights - Heathcliff

Wuthering Heights - Heathcliff

I wasn’t even going to try and resist kicking this off with Wuthering Heights. Before anybody rolls their eyes, this doesn’t have anything to do with the whole "I am Heathcliff…" thing. Even though that is incredibly romantic, and could absolutely have topped any list of quotes from literary classics. Instead, I have always welled up at the point at which Heathcliff says "I love my murderer, but yours? How can I?" At this point, Cathy is slipping away and Heathcliff is torn between loving and hating her. You can almost feel his revenge kicking in here, which does get truly catastrophic later down the line.
