Love All The People - Letters

Famous quotes containing the words letters, love and/or people:

    Deafness produces bizarre effects, reversing the natural order of things; the interchange of letters is the conversation of the deaf, and the only link with society. I would be in despair, for instance, over seeing you speak, but, instead, I am only too happy to hear you write.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Swann was one of those men who, having long lived in the illusions of love, saw the well-being that they gave to many women heighten their happiness without evoking in these women any gratitude, any tenderness toward them; but in their child these men believe they feel an affection which, embodied in their very name, will make them outlast their death. When there was to no longer be a Charles Swann, there would still be a Mademoiselle Swann ... who would continue to love her departed father.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    No, you think too much, that is your trouble. Clever people and grocers, they weigh everything.
    Michael Cacoyannis (b. 1922)
