Heathcliff and Thinking

Recently I read Wuthering Heights, which I hadn’t read since high school and barely remembered. I was struck by the following expression from Heathcliff regarding how he copes with pain. (And I think the book cover below is fantastic–one of the Penguin Classics editions, which I love.)

Let me alone, and I’ll plan it out: while I’m thinking of that, I don’t feel pain. (62)
