15 Romantic Quotes From Letters Of Famous Writers That Will Make You Fall In Love

No matter how much you Snapchat, or how many hours you skype, it is never same as a love letter. When it comes to expressing love, nothing beats the good old hand-written letter complete with stamps and sent via actual postal services.

When you write a letter, you not only put your thoughts, but your heart in it. It shows the other person that you care, that you put that little extra effort of choosing a paper, selecting a pen, spending a little more time on writing, and walking those extra few metres to that post box.

From writing a simple “I love you” to scribbling exquisite words, do walk that extra mile once. It will be worth it. And to help you, we bring excerpts from love letters of 15 writers, who poured their hearts out on a single piece of paper.
