Keep on reading for the best tips on how to write (and read) a heartfelt Valentine’s Day note.
From Napoleon Bonaparte to Joséphine de Beauharnais
I don’t love you, not at all; on the contrary, I detest you.
You’re a naughty, gawky, foolish Cinderella.
You never write me; you don’t love your own husband; you know what pleasures your letters give him, and yet you haven’t written him six lines.
Of what sort can be that marvellous being, that new lover that tyrannises over your days and prevents your giving any attention to your husband?
Some fine night, the doors will be broken open, and there I’ll be.
From Johnny Cash to June Carter Cash
Hey June, The fire and excitement may be gone now that we don’t go out there and sing anymore, but the ring of fire still burns around you and I, keeping our love hotter than a pepper sprout.
From Marilyn Monroe to Joe DiMaggio
I don’t know how to tell you just how much I miss you.
I love you till my heart could burst.
All I love, all I want, all I need is you – forever.
I want to just be where you are and be just what you want me to be.
I know it’s lousy of me to be so late so often, and I promise to try a million times harder, I promise.
Love, Marilyn
