Quotes:
From Wuthering Heights (1939)
[Scene at 37:08]
Ellen: Oh, you're lovely, Miss Cathy. Lovely.
Cathy: That's a very silly lie. I'm not lovely. What I am is very brilliant. I have a wonderful brain.
Ellen: Indeed.
Cathy: It enables me to be superior to myself. There's nothing to be gained by just looking pretty like Isabella. Every beauty mark must conceal a thought and every curl be full of humor as well as brilliantine.
