Written by famous people, love letters from the heart
For centuries, Romance has always set the mood for what is to come when a couple is dating or madly in love. How often we forget that sometimes putting words to paper is far more romantic then buying a box of chocolate. A box of chocolate is eaten , the box is tossed aside but words placed on paper lasts an eternity. Writing a love letter takes time, thought and has to come from the heart. A person can tell if a letter is thrown together because it rattles on without making any sense, but a letter from the heart reflects dedication, passion, feeling and emotion that only the person that you are giving it to understands. Due to technology and our fast-paced environment we have set aside the little things in life believing that purchasing a gift is relevant to showing our love to our special someone. Many all over the World are dealing with the hard hit recession, having to count every penny but a letter only takes a beautiful piece of paper, a pen and your heart. Writing a love letter is free nothing can be more expressive then words. Researching I ran across some famous love letters that may entice you to sit down , placing your pen in hand and begin expressing your words to the person that you love. You may not be as poetic as they were, but words are worth a thousand words.
Ludwig Von Beethoven ( A Love Letter)
If you are an admirer of music Ludwig Van Beethoven not only composed and played but he to wrote words of love to the woman he held dear to his heart. At the age of 57, Beethoven had passed away, amongst his possessions was a love letter that was written to an unknown woman he had called his "Immortal Beloved".

July 6, 1806
My angel, my all, my very self -- only a few words today and at that with your pencil -- not till tomorrow will my lodgings be definitely determined upon -- what a useless waste of time. Why this deep sorrow where necessity speaks -- can our love endure except through sacrifices -- except through not demanding everything -- can you change it that you are not wholly mine, I not wholly thine?
Oh, God! look out into the beauties of nature and comfort yourself with that which must be -- love demands everything and that very justly -- that it is with me so far as you are concerned, and you with
me. If we were wholly united you would feel the pain of it as little as I!
Now a quick change to things internal from things external. We shall surely see each other; moreover, I cannot communicate to you the observations I have made during the last few days touching my own life -- if our hearts were always close together I would make none of the kind. My heart is full of many things to say to you - Ah! -- there are moments when I feel that speech is nothing after all -- cheer up -- remain my true, only treasure, my all as I am yours; the gods must send us the rest that which shall be best for us.
Lord Byron To Lady Caroline Lamb ( A Love Letter)
Notoriety given by being a womanizer and a world-famous poet by the ripe old age of 24 although brief he had a very passionate love affair with Lady Caroline Lamb. Feeling pressured by Caroline's mother he had written a letter explaining why he was ending the relationship. History notates that possibly Lady Caroline's mother had a very deep infatuation with Lord Byron in this letter he writes about his reason for ending it.
My dearest Caroline,
If tears, which you saw & know I am not apt to shed, if the agitation in which I parted from you, agitation which you must have perceived through the whole of this most nervous, nervous affair, did not commence till the moment of leaving you approached, if all that I have said & done, & am still but too ready to say & do, have not sufficiently proved what my real feelings are & must be ever towards you, my love, I have no other proof to offer.
God knows I wish you happy, & when I quit you, or rather when you from a sense of duty to your husband & mother quit me, you shall acknowledge the truth of what I again promise & vow, that no other in word or deed shall ever hold the place in my affection which is & shall be most sacred to you, till I am nothing.
I never knew till that moment, the madness of -- my dearest & most beloved friend -- I cannot express myself -- this is no time for words -- but I shall have a pride, a melancholy pleasure, in suffering what you yourself can hardly conceive -- for you don not know me. -- I am now about to go out with a heavy heart, because -- my appearing this Evening will stop any absurd story which the events of today might give rise to -- do you think now that I am cold & stern, & artful -- will even others think so, will your mother even -- that mother to whom we must indeed sacrifice much, more much more on my part, than she shall ever know or can imagine.
"Promises not to love you" ah Caroline it is past promising -- but shall attribute all concessions to the proper motive -- & never cease to feel all that you have already witnessed -- & more than can ever be known but to my own heart -- perhaps to yours -- May God protect forgive & bless you -- ever & even more than ever.
yr. most attached
P.S. -- These taunts which have driven you to this -- my dearest Caroline -- were it not for your mother & the kindness of all your connections, is there anything on earth or heaven would have made me so happy as to have made you mine long ago? & not less now than then, but more than ever at this time -- you know I would with pleasure give up all here & all beyond the grave for you -- & in refraining from this -- must my motives be misunderstood --? I care not who knows this -- what use is made of it -- it is you & to you only that they owe yourself, I was and am yours, freely & most entirely, to obey, to honour, love --& fly with you when, where, & how you yourself might & may determine.
His words till this day can make any woman shutter as they are so eloquently written and quite meaningful. Lord Byron certainly had a way with words when it came to the ladies in his life.
Ronald Regan On His 31st Wedding Anniversary ( A Love Letter)
But perhaps the most romantic letter ever written was by a now departed former President of the United States of America not only were their tears of sadness the day of his passing but the love that he had for his wife and former first lady were words heard and read by millions of people who felt an instant closeness to him. His words to his wife will forever be one of my favorite romantic letters ever written in the last century. He had written this aboard the AIR FORCE ONE celebrating their thirty-first wedding Anniversary. You can still hear his voice as you read the letter that he had written to his wife on that special day.
Aboard Air Force One
March 4 1983
Dear First Lady
I know tradition has it that on this morning I place cards Happy Anniversary cards on your breakfast tray. But things are somewhat mixed up. I substituted a gift & delivered it a few weeks ago.
Still this is the day, the day that marks 31 years of such happiness as comes to few men. I told you once that it was like an adolescent's dream of what marriage should be like. That hasn't changed.
You know I love the ranch but these last two days made it plain I only love it when you are there. Come to think of it that's true of every place & every time. When you aren't there I'm no place, just lost in time & space.
I more than love you, I'm not whole without you. You are life itself to me. When you are gone I'm waiting for you to return so I can start living again.
Happy Anniversary & thank you for 31 wonderful years.
I love you
Your Grateful Husband
These are just a few that were located in the book "Love Letters of Great Men", but give you ideas reflecting thought, meaning, heart, passion, eloquence, and love it was a simple written letter that came directly from the heart. If you are finding yourself in a dilemma or a budget crunch just sit down, with pen in hand , writing on a piece of paper and begin writing from the heart. It does not have to be poetic it simply has to hold the heart in the palm of your hand.
