Betrayal Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

"Oh!" he sobbed, "I cannot bear it! Catherine, Catherine, I'm a traitor, too, and I dare not tell you! But leave me, and I shall be killed! Dear Catherine, my life is in your hands: and you have said you loved me, and if you did, it wouldn't harm you. You'll not go, then? kind, sweet, good Catherine! And perhaps you will consent – and he'll let me die with you!" (27.16)

Linton Heathcliff can no longer hide his profound fear of his own father. The worst part is that he wants Catherine to sacrifice herself for him because he is too much of a wuss.
