Seven Romantic Quotes From (Can You Guess?)

When Tom and I first started dating he lived two and half hours away from me. Long-distance phone calls were very expensive inside the state, so we wrote each other often. We spent one anniversary reading through them, and it was hilarious and special at the same time. Hilarious in the words we chose, and special in the heart expressed early in our relationship. We cherish those letters!

With the arrival of social media and emails, letter writing has become a thing of the past. But love notes are no less appreciated when one takes the time to write their own sentiments on paper.

I recently discovered quotes from the love letters of some famous couples. I won’t tell you right away who penned them. I would rather you simply enjoy the way they expressed their heart on paper. I’ll reveal the answers in a comment later. For now just read and enjoy.

One

“Every day and every night I want to see you and be with you, yet I have no feeling of selfish ownership or jealousy. Let’s go for a long ride Sunday; let’s go to the mountains on weekends; let’s read books in front of fires; most of all, let’s really grow together and find the happiness we know is ours.”

Two

“It made me terribly home sick when I talked with you yesterday morning. It seemed as if you were just around the corner, if 6,000 miles can be just around the corner.

Three

“Miss Adorable, By the same Token that the Bearer hereof sat up with you last night I hereby order you to give him, as many Kisses, and as many Hours of your Company after 9 O’Clock as he shall please to Demand and charge them to my Account.”

Four

“With an indescribable pleasure I have seen near a score of years roll over our Heads, with an affection heightened and improved by time, nor have the dreary years of absence in the smallest degree effaced from my mind the Image of the dear untitled man to whom I gave my Heart.”

Five

“Sweetest little wife, I think all the time of my little laughing, teazing beauty, and how pretty she is, and how she goes to sleep in my arms, and I could almost cry I love you so,”

Six

“Why, my darling, I can’t tell you how completely I am yours, in my every thought,” he declared in one ebullient example. “I did not know myself how much I loved you until I found out that you love me.”

Seven

“Feb. 14 may be the date they observe and call Valentine’s Day, but that is for people of only ordinary luck. I happen to have a Valentine’s life, which started on March 4, 19__ and will continue as long as I have you.”

These lovers took time to think long and well of their love and what they meant to them personally. When was the last time you purposed to write your heart for your spouse with pen and paper? If you can’t remember, this Valentine’s Day may be the perfect chance to give it a go. There are tutorials to help you pen your best. I encourage you to make this Valentine’s Day one of personal expression rather than the mass-produced message bought from the store.

  2. Right here, right now, it’s a bit different, the personal message my wife needs.

    This cancer’s going to kill me,
    have no doubt upon that line,
    and my desire is to see
    you on the road to doing fine.
    Here nothing lasts forever,
    so reject the devil’s lies.
    I’ve loved our time together,
    but everybody dies.
    Step out with faithful friends,
    and a church community.
    so that when my life here ends
    you’re not lonely-chained to me.
    Sing it in my memory, this Maori fighting song:
    Ake ake kia kaha – For ever, and be strong!
