I died in my dreams, what’s that supposed to mean?

“That however which you may suppose the most potent to arrest my imagination, is actually the least — for what is not connected with her to me? and what does not recall her? I cannot look down at this floor, but her features are shaped in the flags! In every cloud, in every tree — filling the air at night, and caught by glimpses in every object, by day I am surrounded by her image! The most ordinary faces of men, and women — my own features mock me in resemblance. The entire world is a dreadful collection of memoranda that she did exist, and that I have lost her!”

– Heathcliff

 

“He wanted all to lie in an ecstasy of peace; I wanted all to sparkle, and dance in a glorious jubilee. I said his heaven would be only half alive; and he said mine would be drunk: I said I should fall asleep in his; and he said he could not breathe in mine, and began to grow very snappish. At last we agreed to try both, as soon as the right weather came.”
