Quotes regarding Heathcliff and Catherine's gothic love

In these notes...

'Catherine' refers to Catherine Linton (nee Earnshaw).

'Linton' refers to Edgar Linton.

The final quote about Linton is not the most relevant just shows the transgressive nature of their (Heathcliff and Catherine's) adulterous affair and shows that not even after death do their bodies rest together... or do they (see chapter 34- adds to weirdness of the situation)
