Famous quotes containing the word letters:

    The entire merit of a man can never be made known; nor the sum of his demerits, if he have them. We are only known by our names; as letters sealed up, we but read each other’s superscriptions.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    A man who publishes his letters becomes a nudist—nothing shields him from the world’s gaze except his bare skin. A writer, writing away, can always fix himself up to make himself more presentable, but a man who has written a letter is stuck with it for all time.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    Sir, more than kisses, letters mingle souls.
    For, thus friends absent speak.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)
