Private Letters

Famous quotes containing the words letters and/or private:

    Since ... six weeks ago, there has been no day in which I have not had letters and visits on the subject of my nomination for the Presidency.... I say very little. I have in no instance encouraged any one to work to that end.... I have said the whole talk about me is on the score of availability. Let availability do the work then.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    An affair wants to spill, to share its glory with the world. No act is so private it does not seek applause.
