more red hot celebrity love letters to fan the flames

by MK Burnell
We’re fascinated by the art of the love letter. Ever since we started coming across these intimate pieces of romantic history, we’ve felt compelled to share them with the world. So to celebrate our Valentine’s Day Rhapsody in Red, here’s one more installment in our series of love letters from famous figures throughout the ages. Don’t forget to check out part one and part two.
These letters, and many more like them, came from the fabulous and fascinating blog Letters of Note
First, a letter of love and longing from artist Rockwell Kent to his wife, Frances:
rockwellkent.jpg“Frances! I am so lonely I can hardly bear it. As one needs happiness so have I needed love; that is the deepest need of the human spirit. And as I love you utterly, so have you now become the whole world of my spirit. It is beside and beyond anything that you can ever do for me; it lies in what you are, dear love — to me so infinitely lovely that to be near you, to see you, hear you, is now the only happiness, the only life, I know. How long these hours are alone!
Yet is good for me to know the measure of my love and need, that I may at least be brought to so govern myself as never to lose the love and trust that you have given me. 
Dear Frances, let us make and keep our love more beautiful than any love has ever been before. 
Forever, dearest one. 
Thy
Rockwell.”


No less lovely for its wildly different style, here’s a letter from beloved comedian George Carlin to his wife, Sally:
carlin.jpg“SALLYBURGER,
If you took THE NUMBER OF SUB-ATOMIC PARTICLES IN THE UNIVERSE and multiplied that number times itself THAT MANY TIMES; and then added the total number of MICRO-SECONDS since the beginning of time, times itself; and then added 803–you would STILL have only the tiniest fraction of A BILLION-BILLIONTH PER CENT of the amount of love I HAVE FOR YOU. 
Love, 
your candle partner, the romantic Mr Carlin, your eternal flame.”

And finally, a letter of pure, raw emotion from writer Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolfe:
westwoolf.jpg“…I am reduced to a thing that wants Virginia. I composed a beautiful letter to you in the sleepless nightmare hours of the night, and it has all gone: I just miss you, in a quite simple desperate human way. You, with all your undumb letters, would never write so elementary a phrase as that; perhaps you wouldn’t even feel it. And yet I believe you’ll be sensible of a little gap. But you’d clothe it in so exquisite a phrase that it should lose a little of its reality. Whereas with me it is quite stark: I miss you even more than I could have believed; and I was prepared to miss you a good deal. So this letter is really just a squeal of pain. It is incredible how essential to me you have become. I suppose you are accustomed to people saying these things. Damn you, spoilt creature; I shan’t make you love me any more by giving myself away like this — But oh my dear, I can’t be clever and stand-offish with you: I love you too much for that. Too truly. You have no idea how stand-offish I can be with people I don’t love. I have brought it to a fine art. But you have broken down my defenses. And I don’t really resent it.”

May these heartfelt words inspire you to send a love letter of your own. Happy Valentine’s Day, lovers!
