the most beautiful letters of all timeIsn’t it a wonderful feeling when you open a letter, touch the surface your lover touched, and feel the emotions he’s trying to convey to you? 

To remind you of this true beauty of real values and feelings, I bring pieces of letters that are characterized as the most beautiful love letters of all time.

Namely, great artists wrote to lovers about their emotions and feelings. What we say so hard today, and even less often, write.

I present to you the seven most beautiful love letters of all time.

“We get old and get used to each other. We think alike. We read each other’s [sic] 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 a while, like today, I meditate on it and realize 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. Happy Birthday Princess. – John”

“My darling (my still) My husband. I wish I could tell you of my love for you, of my fear, my delight, my pure animal pleasure of you – (with you) – my jealousy, my pride, my anger at you, at times.

Most of all my love for you, and whatever love you can dole out to me – I wish I could write about it but I can’t. I can only “boil and bubble” inside and hope you understand how I really feel.” 

Ludwig Van Beethoven’s letter to his “Immortal Beloved”

“Even in bed my ideas yearn towards you, my Immortal Beloved, here and there joyfully, then again sadly, awaiting from Fate, whether it will listen to us. I can only live, either altogether with you or not at all. Yes, I have determined to wander about for so long far away, until I can fly into your arms and call myself quite at home with you, can send my soul enveloped by yours into the realm of spirits — yes, I regret, it must be. You will get over it all the more as you know my faithfulness to you; never another one can own my heart, never — never! […] Your love made me the happiest and unhappiest at the same time. At my actual age I should need some continuity, sameness of life — can that exist under our circumstances? Angel, I just hear that the post goes out every day — and must close, therefore, so that you get the L. at once. Be calm — love me — today — yesterday.

Of your beloved

Ever thine.
Ever mine.
Ever ours.”

Mark Twain’s letter to Olivia Langdon

“Out of the depts of my happy heart wells a great tide of love and prayer for this priceless treasure that is confided to my life-long keeping. You cannot see its intangible waves as they flow toward you, darling, but in these lines you may will hear, as it were, the distant beating of its surf.”

Zelda Sayre’s letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald

“I look down the tracks and see you coming—and out of every haze & mist your darling rumpled trousers are hurrying to me— Without you, dearest dearest I couldn’t see or hear or feel or think—or live— I love you so and I’m never in all our lives going to let us be apart another night. It’s like begging for mercy of a storm or killing Beauty or growing old, without you. I want to kiss you so—and in the back where your dear hair starts and your chest— I love you—and I cant tell you how much […]”


I hope you enjoyed these beautiful love letters. They are a great reminder of how love once was silly, delicate, but wonderfully romantic.
