Love Letters of Great Men

26 Jan

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we wanted to throw a little inspiration your way. Take a note from the great men and women heralded on these embellished Paperblanks journals, and create a love letter for the special one in your life today. Granted, all the quotes may not have to do with “love” directly, but that’s why they are here for “inspiration.”

Charles Dickens

“Tis love that makes the world go round, my baby.”

“A loving heart is the truest wisdom.”

“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.”

“Never close your lips to those whom you have already opened your heart.”

“I hope that real love and truth are stronger in the end than any evil or misfortune in the world.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Paperblanks Embellished Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby Manuscript Wrap

“If I knew words enough, I could write the longest love letter in the world and never get tired.”

“You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.”

“I’m a romantic; a sentimental person thinks things will last, a romantic person hopes against hope that they won’t.”

“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.”

“Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead.”

Charlotte Bronte

Paperblanks Embellished Charlotte Bronte Manuscript Wrap

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”

“I have little left in myself — I must have you. The world may laugh — may call me absurd, selfish — but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame.”

Shakespeare

Paperblanks Embellished Shakespeare Manuscript Wrap

“They do not love that do not show their love. The course of true love never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.”

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.”

“Time is very slow for those who wait
Very fast for those who are scared
very long for those who lament
Very short for those who celebrate
But for those who love time is eternal”

Vincent Van Gogh

Paperblanks Embellished Vincent Van Gogh Manuscript Wrap

“Life has become very clear to me, and I am very glad that I love.  My life and my love are one.”

“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”

“There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”

“Love is eternal — the aspect may change, but not the essence There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes one calmer about many things, and that way, one is more fit for one’s work.”

Paperblanks journals feature striking printed images on their durable, hard covers. Beautifully made, each high-quality journal is sewn rather than glued. The pages open nicely and lie flat for ease of writing … no lost pages in these journals. Instead, delight in a truly well-made object and let it remind you that the finest things in life are the ones that last.
