Famous LOVE LETTERS

1. Winston Churchill tells wife Clementine Churchill of his undying love (1935)
You wrote some words very dear to me, about my having enriched your life. I cannot tell you what pleasure this gave me, because I always feel so overwhelmingly in your debt, if there can be accounts in love… What it has been to me to live all these years in your heart and companionship no phrases can convey.
2. Richard Burton tells Elizabeth Taylor of her beauty (1964)
My blind eyes are desperately waiting for the sight of you. You don’t realise of course, E.B., how fascinatingly beautiful you have always been, and how strangely you have acquired an added and special and dangerous loveliness.
3. King Henry VIII expresses his love for Anne Boleyn (1527)
I beg to know expressly your intention touching the love between us…Necessity compels me to obtain this answer, having been more than a year wounded by the dart of love, and not yet sure whether I shall fail or find a place in your affection.”
4. Johnny Cash wishes wife June Carter Cash a happy 65th birthday (1994)
We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted. But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realise how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.
5. John Keats tells Fanny Brawne he cannot live without her (1819)
My love has made me selfish. I cannot exist without you – I am forgetful of every thing but seeing you again…You have ravish’d me away by a Power I cannot resist: and yet I could resist till Isaw you…My Love isselfish – I cannot breathe without you…
