I have come across hundreds of wonderful quotes, poems, stories, and anecdotes while on searches for other things. I have books and files full of them. So, I thought I might share a few every now and then.
One thing I recently came across was an excerpt from a love letter that Beethoven wrote to a mysterious love (and yes, this is part of the letter that Carrie reads in the Sex and the City movie). He wrote:
Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved…I can live only wholly with you or not at all…No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves…Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
Do men still write like this anymore? Ahhh, just brought a tear to my eye :) I would love to write like this, create something so beautiful that people are still reading it hundreds of years later. Being written to like this wouldn't be so bad either :)
