Letters quotes by Adele Rose
#1. PE! This word was comprised of two single letters, which would normally not cause anyone any trouble. They were two single letters that were usually associated with the further words of "health" and "extended life" and therefore, had a positive reputation. However, for me, the P and the E put together was the worst possible combination. Every time they were mentioned, I would sigh in displeasure, my heart rate would increase and I would feel lightheaded. After all, in my mind, PE = exercise and exercise = torture! #Quote by Adele Rose
Letters quotes by Douglas Adams
#2. Is it anything to do with this?" she said. The thing she took out of her bag was battered and travel-worn as if it had been hurled into prehistoric rivers, baked under the sun that shines so redly on the deserts of Kakrafoon, half buried in the marbled sands that fringe the heady vapored oceans of Santraginus V, frozen on the glaciers of the moon of Jaglan Beta, sat on, kicked around spaceships, scuffed and generally abused, and since its makers had thought that these were exactly the sorts of things that might happen to it, they had thoughtfully encased it in a sturdy plastic cover and written on it, in large friendly letters, the words "Don't Panic. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Letters quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#3. I wrote a query letter to an editor - a friend of a friend. The editor called me an idiot, told me never to contact an editor directly, and then recommended three literary agents he had worked with before. Laurie Fox was one of them, and I've never looked back. #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Letters quotes by Cassandra Clare
#4. The letters were worn by time and Zachariah's own flesh, but they had been struck deep into the wood in the precise places where Zachariah would put his hands on them when they fought. So, in a way, they would always be fighting together.
The letters were W and H. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Letters quotes by Carew Papritz
#5. Sometimes I travel just to be overwhelmed – for it's good every now and then to be overwhelmed. #Quote by Carew Papritz
Letters quotes by Erich Von Stroheim
#6. The picture has made its million back in four months; I have been overwhelmed by letters, hundreds of them, literally, begging me in my next production not to swing over the shallow trash of mother love, father love, sister love, brother love. #Quote by Erich Von Stroheim
Letters quotes by Eloisa James
#7. She was the only one who argued with Grace. 'He's not a good choice for you,' she insisted. 'He respects you too much.'
'Respect is good,' Grace said, thinking of how Colin slighted her letters. 'I want respect.'
'It's not enough.'
'He loves me!'
Not the right way.'
Finally Grace turned on her sister in a rage. 'Don't you see, Lily? Must you make me say this aloud? No one will ever love me in the /right/ way, not in that feverish way that men fall in love with you. I'm not that sort of woman!'
Lily cried, and Grace ended up crying, too. #Quote by Eloisa James
Letters quotes by Herodotus
#8. These Phoenicians who came with Cadmus and of whom the Gephyraeans were a part brought with them to Hellas, among many other kinds of learning, the alphabet, which had been unknown before this, I think, to the Greeks. As time went on the sound and the form of the letters were changed. At this time the Greeks who were settled around them were for the most part Ionians, and after being taught the letters by the Phoenicians, they used them with a few changes of form. In so doing, they gave to these characters the name of Phoenician, as was quite fair seeing that the Phoenicians had brought them into Greece.
(5-58-59) #Quote by Herodotus
Letters quotes by Jose N Harris
#9. We showed up.
We stood up.
We stepped forward.
We raised our right hands.
We mailed our letters home.
We shuffled, then stood in the door.
We jumped.
We walked through the fire.
We did not dodge.
We did not evade.
... We did not run.
We did not hide.
We did not leave a friend behind.
Consequently…
We have nothing to prove.
We have no stories to tell.
We have no one to convince.
Those who matter, already know.
Those who don't, never will.
We few.
We Band of Brothers.
We Moatengators... #Quote by Jose N Harris
Letters quotes by J.K. Rowling
#10. I have many questions for you, Harry Potter."
"Like what?" Harry spat, fists still clenched.
"Well," said Riddle, smiling pleasantly, "how is it that you- a skinny boy with no extraordinary magical talent- managed to defeat the greatest wizard of all time? How did you escape with nothing but a scar, while Lord Voldemort's powers were destroyed?"
There was an odd red gleam in his hungry eyes now.
"Why do you care how I escaped?" said Harry slowly. "Voldemort was after your time...."
"Voldemort," said Riddle softly, "is my past, present, and future, Harry Potter...."
He pulled Harry's wand from his pocket and began to trace it through the air, writing three shimmering words:

TOM MARVOLO RIDDLE

Then he waved the wand once, and the letters of his name rearranged themselves:

I AM LORD VOLDEMORT

"You see?" he whispered. "It was a name I was already using at Hogwarts, to my most intimate friends only, of course. You think I was going to use my filthy Muggle father's name forever? I, in whose veins runs the blood of Salazar Slytherin himself, through my mother's side? I, keep the name of a foul, common Muggle, who abandoned me even before I was born, just because he found out his wife was a witch? No, Harry- I fashioned myself a new name, a name I knew wizards everywhere would one day fear to speak, when I had become the greatest sorcerer in the world! #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Letters quotes by Gena Showalter
#11. A few seconds later, her reply came in.
WTF an A! I blinked, sure I was misreading. But no, the letters didn't change.
Me: Nana, do U know what WTF means??
Her: Of course silly, it means well, that's fantastic. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Letters quotes by Ilya Ehrenburg
#12. I was right when I said a very long time ago that our age would leave few living documents behind it: it was rare for anyone to keep a diary, letters were short and businesslike--"I'm alive and well"--and few memoirs were written. There are many reasons for this. Let me mention just one, not perhaps recognized by everybody: we were too often at loggerheads with our own past to give it proper thought. Within the half-century, our ideas on people and events have changed many times; conversations were broken off in mid-sentence; thoughts and feelings could not but be affected by circumstances. #Quote by Ilya Ehrenburg
Letters quotes by Earl Nightingale
#13. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

Letters quotes by David Steel
#14. To listen to some people in Politics, you'd think-nice-was a four-letter word. #Quote by David Steel
Letters quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#15. Gansey studied Adam's erratic handwriting. His letters always looked like they were running from something. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Letters quotes by Ralph Fiennes
#16. Success ... Is all about being able to extend love to people ... not in a big capital-letter sense but in the everyday; little by little, task by task, gesture by gesture, word by word #Quote by Ralph Fiennes
Letters quotes by Elisha Cuthbert
#17. Yeah, I've gotten a few letters from prison. #Quote by Elisha Cuthbert
Letters quotes by Jeremy Clarkson
#18. I was reading The Mirror the other day and came across a letter from a reader who wrote, 'I was riding my bike to work when this red Ferrari pulled up next to me. Out of the window, Jeremy Clarkson shouted 'Get a car', and drove off.' What I actually said was, 'Get a car you hatchet faced, leaf-eating tw*t #Quote by Jeremy Clarkson
Letters quotes by Jenny Han
#19. I'm crossing our backyard to the Pearces', trying to juggle the bag and the portable speakers and my phone, when I see John Ambrose McClaren standing in front of the tree house, staring up at it with his arms crossed. I'd know the back of his blond head anywhere.
I freeze, suddenly nervous and unsure. I'd thought Peter or Chris would be here with me when he arrived, and that would smooth out any awkwardness. But no such luck.
I put down all my stuff and move forward to tap him on the shoulder, but he turns around before I can. I take a step back. "Hi! Hey!" I say.
"Hey!" He takes a long look at me. "Is it really you?"
"It's me."
"My pen pal the elusive Lara Jean Covey who shows up at Model UN and runs off without so much as a hello?"
I bite the inside of my cheek. "I'm pretty sure I at least said hello."
Teasingly he says, "No, I'm pretty sure you didn't."
He's right: I didn't. I was too flustered. Kind of like right now. It must be that distance between knowing someone when you were a kid and seeing them now that you're both more grown-up, but still not all the way grown-up, and there are all these years and letters in between you, and you don't know how to act.
"Well--anyway. You look…taller." He looks more than just taller. Now that I can take the time to really look at him, I notice more. With his fair hair and milky skin and rosy cheeks, he looks like he could be an English farmer's son. But he's slim, so maybe the sensitive f #Quote by Jenny Han
Letters quotes by Hill Harper
#20. My first two books, 'Letters to a Young Brother' and 'Letters to a Young Sister,' were ... distributed pretty widely. Judges in juvenile justice facilities started citing the book as required reading. #Quote by Hill Harper
Letters quotes by George P. Rowell
#21. The mystery of writing advertisements consists mainly in saying in a few plain words exactly what it is desired to say, precisely as it would be written in a letter or told to an acquaintance. #Quote by George P. Rowell
Letters quotes by Bill Callahan
#22. Your letter filled the hole in my day like a key.
Turn it. #Quote by Bill Callahan
Letters quotes by Kirmen Uribe
#23. Your language looks like a treasure map,' she said, 'if you forget all the rest of the letters and focus in on the x, it looks as if you could find out where the treasure is. #Quote by Kirmen Uribe
Letters quotes by Sorin Cerin
#24. The Epistle of our being is written with letters full of blood drained from the love of God's Word. #Quote by Sorin Cerin
Letters quotes by Carl B. Boyer
#25. Voltaire called the calculus "the Art of numbering and measuring exactly a Thing whose Existence cannot be conceived."
See Letters Concerning the English Nation p. 152 #Quote by Carl B. Boyer
Letters quotes by Fanny Fern
#26. It is the most astonishing thing that persons who have not sufficient education to spell correctly, to punctuate properly, to place capital letters in the right places, should, when other means of support fail, send mss. for publication. #Quote by Fanny Fern
Letters quotes by I.L. Peretz
#27. A letter depends on how you read it, a melody on how you sing it. #Quote by I.L. Peretz
Letters quotes by Saul Bellow
#28. All at once he was aware that his angry spirit had stolen forth again and he was about to write letters. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Letters quotes by Lisa Schroeder
#29. Today there's no one here,
so I find a rock and open my notebook
filled with letters to Lucca,
reading them,
noticing how the letters
decreased in frequency
over the past couple of months.
When i started,
shortly after he died,
I wrote them every day.
I hurt so bad, I wanted to scream,
but I couldn't,
so my words on the page
became a diary of the pain. #Quote by Lisa Schroeder
Letters quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#30. The exercise of letters is sometimes linked to the ambition to contruct an absolute book, a book of books that includes the otherslike a Platonic archetype, an object whose virtues are not diminished by the passage of time. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Letters quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#31. We may know that the work we continue to put off doing will be bad. Worse, however, is the work we never do. A work that's finished is at least finished. It may be poor, but it exists, like the miserable plant in the lone flowerpot of my neighbour who's crippled. That plant is her happiness, and sometimes it's even mine. What I write, bad as it is, may provide some hurt or sad soul a few moments of distraction from something worse. That's enough for me, or it isn't enough, but it serves some purpose, and so it is with all of life. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Letters quotes by Ed Seykota
#32. Good traders trade. Good letter writers write letters. #Quote by Ed Seykota
Letters quotes by Jules Renard
#33. Add two letters two paris and it's paradise. #Quote by Jules Renard
Letters quotes by Gregory Maguire
#34. But she wrote out some extra words on a piece of paper so Rain could practice reading. "Is this a magic spell?" the girl asked her.
"Don't let me get sappy on you, but when you get right down to it, every collection of letters is a magic spell, even if it is a moronic proclamation by the Emperor. Words have their impact, girl. Mind your manners. I may not know how to fly but I know how to read, and that's almost the same thing."
-Out of Oz #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Letters quotes by Walter Van Tilburg Clark
#35. It is possible to insult Americans?"
"They are automatically insulted and enraged," said the young composer. "They form splenetic organizations by the hundreds, and write letters to periodicals and congressmen. They gather in mobs and pay no attention. They hang people without trial and shoot citizens down with machine guns out of passing cars. They will despise you because you do not eat the same things they eat for breakfast. They even apply indifference. #Quote by Walter Van Tilburg Clark
Letters quotes by Betsy Lerner
#36. But I also believe there is enormous value in the piece of writing that goes no further than the one person for whom it was intended, that no combination of written words is more eloquent than those exchanged in letters between lovers or friends, or along the pale blue lines of private diaries, where people take communion with themselves. #Quote by Betsy Lerner
Letters quotes by Beryl Markham
#37. It seemed that the printers of the African maps had a slightly malicious habit of including, in large letters, the names of towns, junctions, and villages which, while most of them did exist in fact, as a group of thatched huts may exist or a water hole, they were usually so inconsequential as completely to escape discovery from the cockpit. #Quote by Beryl Markham
Letters quotes by Alfred Brendel
#38. The word 'listen' contains the same letters as the word 'silent.' #Quote by Alfred Brendel
Letters quotes by Jane Austen
#39. Perhaps you are not sitting in this room, and I am not sitting by you. These are points in which a doubt is equally possible. Not keep a journal! How are your absent cousins to understand the tenour of your life in Bath without one? How are the civilities and compliments of every day to be related as they ought to be, unless noted down every evening in a journal? How are your various dresses to be remembered, and the particular state of your complexion, and curl of your hair to be described in all their diversities, without having constant recourse to a journal? My dear madam, I am not so ignorant of young ladies' ways as you wish to believe me; it is this delightful habit of journaling which largely contributes to form the easy style of writing for which ladies are so generally celebrated. Everybody allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female. Nature may have done something, but I am sure it must be essentially assisted by the practice of keeping a journal. #Quote by Jane Austen
Letters quotes by Toni Morrison
#40. Marriages performed within,' read the sign next to the coffeehouse door, underneath in small letters a verse that combined warning with a sales pitch: 'When lawless lust hath conceived it bringeth forth sin. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Letters quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#41. If you were asked to spell the name Antoninus, would you rap out each letter at the top of voice, and then, if your hearers grew angry, grow angry yourself in turn? Rather, would you not proceed to enumerate the several letters quietly one by one? Well then; remember that here in life every piece of duty is likewise made up of its separate items. Pay careful attention to each of these, without fuss and without returning temper for temper, and so ensure the methodical completion of your task. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Letters quotes by Raymond Chandler
#42. I didn't mind what she called me, what anybody called me. But this was the room I had to live in. It was all I had in the way of a home. In it was everything that was mine, that had any association for me, any past, anything that took the place of a family. Not much: a few books, pictures, radio, chessmen, old letters, stuff like that. Nothing. Such as they were, they had all my memories. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Letters quotes by Andy Rooney
#43. One of the sweetest things in life: a letter from a friend. #Quote by Andy Rooney
Letters quotes by Auliq Ice
#44. Love can be expressed in a myriad of different methods, but the most timeless and most treasured will always remain the classic love letter. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Letters quotes by Emily  Williams
#45. Sometimes there are people in this world that you meet. Most of these people remain just that, passing acquaintances that further down the line you will struggle to remember their names, let alone picture their faces and it all fades into a distant past almost like a dissolving aspirin. Some acquaintances become friends, but again these come and go with only a few remaining consistent. However, occasionally you will meet someone that changes who you are and who you will become. #Quote by Emily Williams
Letters quotes by George R R Martin
#46. You can write the most detailed, vivid description of an ax entering a skull, and nobody will say a word in protest. But if you write a similarly detailed description of a penis entering a vagina, you get letters from people saying they'll never read you again. What the hell? Penises entering vaginas bring a lot more joy into the world than axes entering skulls. #Quote by George R R Martin
Letters quotes by Simon Garfield
#47. The truly perfect pangram would contain all the letters of the alphabet in the right order, but the only thing that achieves that is the alphabet. There are phrases that use fewer characters, but they are not as catchy. And this is not for want of trying. Here are two of the shortest: 'Quick wafting zephyrs vex bold Jim.' 'Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow. #Quote by Simon Garfield
Letters quotes by Friedrich Von Hugel
#48. You want to grow in virtue, to serve God, to love Christ? Well, you will grow in and attain to these things if you will make them a slow and sure, an utterly real, a mountain step-plod and ascent, willing to have to camp for weeks or months in spiritual desolation, darkness and emptiness at different stages in your march and growth. All demand for constant light, for ever the best - the best to your own feeling, all the attempt at eliminating or minimizing the cross and trial, is so much soft folly and puerile trifling. #Quote by Friedrich Von Hugel
Letters quotes by Lettie B. Cowman
#49. How can we have rain without clouds? Our troubles have always brought us blessings, and they always will, for they are the dark chariots of God's bright and glorious grace. Before long the clouds will be emptied, and every tender plant will be happier due to the showers. Our God may drench us with grief, but He will refresh us with His mercy. Our Lord's love letters often come to us in dark envelopes. His wagons may rumble noisily across the sky, but they are loaded with benefits. And His rod blossoms with sweet flowers and nourishing fruits. #Quote by Lettie B. Cowman
Letters quotes by Bear Grylls
#50. Over the next few days we spent every waking moment together. We made up silly dances, did puzzles in the evening, and she stood smiling on the beach waiting for me as I took my customary New Year's dip in the freezing cold North Atlantic.
I just had a sense that we were meant to be.
I even found out she lived in the next-door road along from where I was renting a room from a friend in London. What were the chances of that?
As the week drew to a close we both got ready to head back south to London. She was flying. I was driving.
"I'll beat you to London," I challenged her.
She smiled knowingly. "No, you won't." (But I love your spirit.)
She, of course, won. It took me ten hours to drive. But at 10:00 P.M. that same night I turned up at her door and knocked.
She answered in her pajamas.
"Damn, you were right," I said, laughing. "Shall we go for some supper together?"
"I'm in my pajamas, Bear."
"I know, and you look amazing. Put a coat on. Come on."
And so she did.
Our first date, and Shara in her pajamas. Now here was a cool girl.
From then on we were rarely apart. I delivered love letters to her office by day and persuaded her to take endless afternoons off.
We roller-skated in the parks, and I took her down to the Isle of Wight for the weekends.
Mum and Dad had since moved to my grandfather's old house in Dorset, and had rented out our cottage on the island. But we still had an old caravan parked down #Quote by Bear Grylls
Letters quotes by Victoria Schwab
#51. He wasn't quite sure when he made it, somewhere between turning on the shower and stepping in, perhaps, or pouring the milk and adding the cereal, or maybe a dozen tiny decisions had added up like letters until they finally made a word, a phrase, a sentence. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
Letters quotes by Albert J. Nock
#52. The position of modern science, as far as an ignorant man of letters can understand it, seems not a step in advance of that held by Huxley and Romanes in the last century. #Quote by Albert J. Nock
Letters quotes by Patty Loveless
#53. I love Miranda Lambert; I think she's wonderful. I love the song 'Love Letters' and 'Famous in a Small Town.' #Quote by Patty Loveless
Letters quotes by Jarod Kintz
#54. Sometimes I get depressed about my age. In March I'll be 26. If man weren't measured in numbers, but rather letters, I'd be turning Z. And then I'd be dead. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Letters quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#55. Kind messages, that pass from land to land; Kind letters, that betray the heart's deep history, In which we feel the pressure of a hand,
One touch of fire,
and all the rest is mystery! #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Letters quotes by Patricia Barry
#56. I plan to rearrange the alphabetical order because i think it has a very big error on the parts of the sequence of some letters. For example, I have just discovered that U and I should be together. #Quote by Patricia Barry
Letters quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#57. I plodded conscientiously through the twenty-six letters, and the only malady I could conclude I had not got was housemaid's knee. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Letters quotes by Jessica Cluess
#58. Words of gibberish had also been carved into these walls with a childish, uneven hand... "All hail the Kindly Emperor" read one sentence. Then, beside it in screaming block letters, "WITNESS HIS SMILE. #Quote by Jessica Cluess
Letters quotes by Jacqueline Woodson
#59. Nothing in the world is like this-
a bright white page with
pale blue lines. The smell of a newly sharpened pencil
the soft hush of it
moving finally
one day
into letters. #Quote by Jacqueline Woodson
Letters quotes by Olivier Magny
#60. Just like literature, wine takes time to learn. Before having access to the emotion of a stunning poem or to the vigor of a captivating novel, we all had to go through a long initiation. First, we need to learn the alphabet, the sound of each letter. In wine, that would be learning about the grapes and their characteristics. Then, once we master our letters, we need to learn the arrangements of letters, the pronunciation, the grammar, the structure of sentences. Now we can read. In wine, that would be the stage when we start noticing differences between two reds. You no longer drink wine: you start drinking this wine. #Quote by Olivier Magny
Letters quotes by Mike Duke
#61. It's interesting: the letters I get from mayors that want Wal-Mart to look and invest in their community. #Quote by Mike Duke
Letters quotes by Blaise Pascal
#62. Reverend Fathers, my letters do not customarily follow one another so closely, nor are they usually so extensive. The little time I have had has caused both. I have made this one longer only because I have not had the leisure of making it shorter. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Letters quotes by Charles Portis
#63. He said he enjoyed doing security work for Mr. Jimmerson, keeping nuts and gangsters out of grenade range of the Master, but that one day he hoped to marry a woman who owned a Jeep with raised white letters on the tires. He would take her home and ride around town some. "Look," the people would say, "there goes Ed in four-wheel drive, with his pretty wife at his side." The way to get women, he said, was with a camera. Chloroform was no good, at best a makeshift. But all the girls liked to pose for a camera and became immediately submissive to anyone carrying a great tangle of photographic equipment from his shoulders. You didn't even need film. He said he had once killed a man when he was in the Great Berets by ramming a pencil up his nose and into his brain.
Babcock said, "It's the Green Berets."
"What did I say?"
"You said the Great Berets. But you weren't in the Green Berets or the Great Berets either one, Ed. I don't know why you want to say things like that. I've seen your records."
"I was in a ward with a guy named Danny who was a Green Beret."
"Yes, but that's not the same thing. #Quote by Charles Portis
Letters quotes by Heather O'Neill
#64. The night was a typewriter key that got stuck and kept punching all the letters on top of the others until all that was left was a black blob. No word, no letter, no message in the night for me. #Quote by Heather O'Neill
Letters quotes by Cathleen Schine
#65. A letter ... changes utterly the moment it slips inside an envelope. It stops being mine. It becomes yours. What I mean is gone. What you understand is all that remains. #Quote by Cathleen Schine
Letters quotes by John Steinbeck
#66. There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you - of kindness and consideration and respect - not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn't know you had.
John Steinbeck in Steinbeck: A Life in Letters #Quote by John Steinbeck
Letters quotes by Patti Callahan Henry
#67. I know this about imagination: It needs a place to go. If I don't work at my cards and images and letterpress, if I don't touch the cut metal and carved wood fonts and imagine different patterns as I place letters next to others in a new way, my ideas will turn inward. #Quote by Patti Callahan Henry
Letters quotes by Amelie Nothomb
#68. The nature of the epistolary genre was revealed to me: a form of writing devoted to another person. Novels, poems, and so on, were texts into which others were free to enter, or not. Letters, on the other hand, did not exist without the other person, and their very mission, their significance, was the epiphany of the recipient. #Quote by Amelie Nothomb
Letters quotes by Brad Pitt
#69. A man inserted an 'ad' in the classifieds: "Wife wanted". Next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: "You can have mine." #Quote by Brad Pitt
Letters quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#70. THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM. You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Letters quotes by Jodi Picoult
#71. Mistakes are like the memories you hide in an attic: old love letters from relationships that tanked, photos of dead relatives, toys from a childhood you miss. Out of sight is out of mind, but somewhere deep inside you know they still exist. And you also know that you're avoiding them. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Letters quotes by Phyllis McGinley
#72. One applauds the industry of professional philanthropy. But it has its dangers. After a while the private heart begins to harden. We fling letters into the wastebasket, are abrupt to telephoned solicitations. Charity withers in the incessant gale. #Quote by Phyllis McGinley
Letters quotes by Susan Jacoby
#73. I have received many touching letters and emails from people who live in the most religious parts of the country, in places like rural Texas, saying it is so good to see someone be able to say I am an atheist without shame. #Quote by Susan Jacoby
Letters quotes by Ash Gabrieli
#74. In the whole world, only the English language gives the most accurate and clear description of a woman. Only one word defines our whole being. That is "Female." The first two letters "Fe," coming from Latin word Ferrum, in the periodic table indicate iron and "male" means man. "Female" because our gender is as solid as iron. We can go through the fire, water, endless trials, but remain as strong as before. #Quote by Ash Gabrieli
Letters quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#75. Be glad. Celebrate! Lose your mindless fear, and take courage today. No, don't ever be afraid, no matter what's happened to you before. That's right, don't be afraid, no matter what you may see coming. Take courage because Christ was crucified for you.2 Catherine of Siena, Letters #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Letters quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#76. Paper is cheap, and authors need not now erase one book before they write another. Instead of cultivating the earth for wheat andpotatoes, they cultivate literature, and fill a place in the Republic of Letters. Or they would fain write for fame merely, as others actually raise crops of grain to be distilled into brandy. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Letters quotes by Bobby Fischer
#77. Sometimes girls write me. One girl in Yugoslavia sent me a whole slew of love letters. I don't know how she got my address. She was in a crowd watching me play. She says when I left there the stars fell out of the sky over Yugoslavia, or something like that. #Quote by Bobby Fischer
Letters quotes by Willa Cather
#78. [Mark Twain] is still the rough, awkward, good-natured boy who swore at the deck hands when he was three years old. Thoroughly likeable as a good fellow, but impossible as a man of letters. #Quote by Willa Cather
Letters quotes by Debasish Mridha
#79. My writings are my letters to the universe, who loved me like a mother. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Letters quotes by Owen   Johnson
#80. Brockhurst, the champion of individualism, was soon launched on his favorite topic.

"The great fault of the American nation, which is the fault of republics, is the reduction of everything to the average. Our universities are simply the expression of the forces that are operating outside. We are business colleges purely and simply, because we as a nation have only one ideal - the business ideal."

"That's a big statement," said Regan.

"It's true. Twenty years ago we had the ideal of the lawyer, of the doctor, of the statesman, of the gentleman, of the man of letters, of the soldier. Now the lawyer is simply a supernumerary enlisting under any banner for pay; the doctor is overshadowed by the specialist with his business development of the possibilities of the rich; we have politicians, and politics are deemed impossible for a gentleman; the gentleman cultured, simple, hospitable, and kind, is of the dying generation; the soldier is simply on parade."

"Wow!" said Ricketts, jingling his chips. "They're off."

"Everything has conformed to business, everything has been made to pay. Art is now a respectable career - to whom? To the business man. Why? Because a profession that is paid $3,000 to $5,000 a portrait is no longer an art, but a blamed good business. The man who cooks up his novel according to the weakness of his public sells a hundred thousand copies. Dime novel? No; published by our most conservative publishers - one #Quote by Owen Johnson
Letters quotes by Jeffrey Gitomer
#81. Change is not a four letter word ... but often your reaction to it is! #Quote by Jeffrey Gitomer
Letters quotes by Laura Bush
#82. If I'm just at the White House, I have meetings in my office, I sign letters, I plan different things. Late in the afternoon, I'll quit working and wait for my husband to get home. #Quote by Laura Bush
Letters quotes by Kathryn Minshew
#83. The best cover letters I've read are from people who have a passion for my company, and can make that passion come to life on a page. The letters that make me say, 'Yes! This person really gets it.' Because, at the end of the day, I want to hire people who already get it. Most hiring managers do. #Quote by Kathryn Minshew
Letters quotes by Carew Papritz
#84. I travel to know where I fit into the world, and where I don't. #Quote by Carew Papritz
Letters quotes by Dorothy Parker
#85. Now, look, baby, 'Union' is spelled with 5 letters. It is not a four-letter word. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Letters quotes by Natalia Jaster
#86. The story was heavy in her hands, the book spread open like legs, the letters very small i spite of describing such a big moment #Quote by Natalia Jaster
Letters quotes by Timothy Findley
#87. You begin to arrange your research in bundles - letters - photos - telegrams. This is that last thing you see before you put on your overcoat:
Robert and Rowena with Meg: Rowena seated astride the pony – Robert holding her in place. On the back is written: 'Look! You can see our breath!' And you can. #Quote by Timothy Findley
Letters quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#88. What goes on in your innermost being is worthy of your whole love; you must somehow keep working at it and not lose too much time and too much courage in clarifying your attitude toward people.
Rilke, Rainer Maria (1993-09-17). Letters to a Young Poet (p. 22). W. W. Norton & Company. Kindle Edition. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Letters quotes by Letters To Juliet
#89. What' and 'if' two words as nonthreatening
as words come. But put
them together side-by-side and they
have the power to haunt you for the
rest of your life: 'What if?'..."

"I don't know how your story ended.
But I know that if what you felt
then was love - true love - then
it's never too late. If it was true
then it why wouldn't it be true
now? You need only the courage to
follow your heart..."

"I don't know what a love like that
feels like... a love to leave loved
ones for, a love to cross oceans
for... but I'd like to believe if I
ever felt it. I'd have the courage
to seize it. I hope you had the
courage to seize it, Claire. And if
you didn't, I hope one day that you
will. #Quote by Letters To Juliet
Letters quotes by Brandon Mull
#90. Are you missing the library again?" Seth asked, startling her as he walked into the room.
Kendra turned to face her brother. "You caught me," she congratulated him. "I'm reading."
"I bet the librarians back home are panicking. Summer vacation, and no Kendra Sorenson to keep them in business. Have they been sending you letters?"
"Might not hurt you to pick up a book, just as an experiment."
Whatever. I looked up the definition for 'nerd' in the dictionary. Know what it said?"
"I bet you'll tell me."
" 'If you're reading this, you are one.' "
You're a riot." Kendra turned back to the journal, flipping to a random page.
Seth took a seat on his bed across from her. "Kendra, seriously, I can sort of see reading a cool book for fun, but dusty old journals? Really? Has anybody told you there are magical creatures out there?" He pointed out the window.
"Has anybody told you some of those creatures can eat you?" Kendra responded. "I'm not reading these just for fun. They have good info."
"like what? Patton and Lena smooching?"
Kendra rolled her eyes. "I'm not telling. You'll end up in a tar pit."
"There's a tar pit?" he said, perking up. "Where? #Quote by Brandon Mull
Letters quotes by Seneca.
#91. Because thou writest me often, I thank thee ... Never do I receive a letter from thee, but immediately we are together. #Quote by Seneca.
Letters quotes by Hannah Brencher
#92. It almost feels like at some point life whacks you on top of the head and hands you a list of all the things you can keep. The list is surprisingly long. You can keep letters. You can keep trying. You can keep secrets and you can try your hardest to keep promises. You can keep your eyes on the road. You can keep his sweatshirt, the one he left on the living room floor. You can keep photos and you can keep the memories. But you cannot keep people. People are not things - you can't keep them. #Quote by Hannah Brencher
Letters quotes by Oscar Wilde
#93. There is an unknown land full of strange flowers and subtle perfumes, a land of which it is joy of all joys to dream, a land where all things are perfect and poisonous. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Letters quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#94. Most people do not know at all how beautiful the world is and how much magnificence is revealed in the tiniest things, in some flower, in a stone, in tree bark, or in a birch leaf. (Letters on Life) #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Letters quotes by Jarod Kintz
#95. I'm trying to overcome my OCD by replacing my neurosis with three other letters. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Letters quotes by Alberto Manguel
#96. Socrates affirmed that only that which the reader already knows can be sparked by a reading, and that the knowledge cannot be acquired through dead letters. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Letters quotes by Ruth Rendell
#97. I get a lot of letters from people. They say "I want to be a writer. What should I do?" I tell them to stop writing to me and to get on with it. #Quote by Ruth Rendell
Letters quotes by Kris Carr
#98. For nearly a decade now, I've been teaching others how to thrive by filling their bodies with energizing vitamins, nutrients, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Not a day goes by when someone doesn't write me to say, "Thanks, I feel better now, too." Those letters from my readers are my digital cardinals. #Quote by Kris Carr

Letters quotes by Gary Oldman
#100. I drank for about 25 years getting over the loss of my father and I took the anger out on myself. I did a good job at beating myself up at sometimes. I don't drink anymore but my alcoholic head occasionally says different. 'Nil By Mouth' was a love letter to my father because I needed to resolve some issues in order to be able to forgive him. #Quote by Gary Oldman

#103. I used to get a lot of letters from prisoners. It used to get on my nerves. Especially family members. Everybody's innocent. #Quote by Terry McMillan
Letters quotes by John Irving
#104. I feel more a part of the wrestling community than I feel I belong to the community of arts and letters. Why? Because wrestling requires even more dedication than writing because wrestling represents the most difficult and rewarding objective that I have ever dedicated myself to; because wrestling and wrestling coaches are among the most disciplined and self-sacrificing people I have ever known. #Quote by John Irving
Letters quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#105. Need a distraction today? Not only does 12 + 1 = 11 + 2, but the letters "twelve plus one" rearrange to give you "eleven plus two." #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Letters quotes by Robert Collier
#106. The headline of an advertisement accounts for 60% of the pull of that ad. In the same way, the start of a letter makes or breaks the letter, because if the start does not interest your reader, he never gets down to the rest of your letter. #Quote by Robert Collier
Letters quotes by Susan Mitchell
#107. Typing is an essential skill, but it can be painful. Some children just don't know where the letters are. Typing a three-page story, when they have to spend minutes hunting for every letter, can take forever. Yet we tend to assume that children can type, partly because quite a lot of us know where quite a lot of the letters are, so we assume that children do, too. #Quote by Susan Mitchell
Letters quotes by Luis Bunuel
#108. One of the greatest tragedies in my life is my deafness, for it's been over twenty years now since I've been able to hear notes. When I listen to music it's as if the letters in a text were changing places with one another, rendering the words unintelligible and muddying the lines. I'd consider my old age redeemed if my hearing were to come back, for music would be the gentlest opiate, calming my fears as I move toward death. In any case, I suppose the only chance I have for that kind of miracle involves nothing short of a visit to Lourdes. #Quote by Luis Bunuel
Letters quotes by Brigid Kemmerer
#109. Nick smiled. "I kind of like the irony."
"Jesus, you are such a nerd." Gabriel flung the lighter at him.
"Stop using big words."
"Five letters is a big word? #Quote by Brigid Kemmerer
Letters quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#110. As for the bracelet Mom wore to the funeral, what I did was I converted Dad's last voice message into Morse code, and I used sky-blue beads for silence, maroon beads for breaks between letters, violet beads for breaks between words, and long and short pieces of string between the beads for long and short beeps, which are actually called blips, I think, or something. Dad would have known. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Letters quotes by Graham Greene
#111. Those who marry God can become domesticated too - it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Maria like dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves - it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night. #Quote by Graham Greene
Letters quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#112. I don't save money. Save is a four letter word! I like to borrow money because I can get richer faster on borrowed money. I have what is called retained earnings, so I don't have to save money. If I need money, I will go out and borrow it. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Letters quotes by Cornelia Funke
#113. She read and read and read, but she was stuffing herself with the letters on the page like an unhappy child stuffing itself with chocolate. They didn't taste bad, but she was still unhappy. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Letters quotes by Laurence Housman
#114. If I loved all the world as I do you, I shouldn't write books to it: I should only write letters to it, and that would be only a clumsy stage on the way to entire telepathy. #Quote by Laurence Housman
Letters quotes by Diet Eman
#115. (regarding what kind of day she would want to be released) If I had the opportunity to choose, I would want it to be a radiant sunshiny day! And I would love it to be a Saturday morning. I'd go home and take a bath and soak and shampoo and put on clean underwear and clean clothes! And then Sunday morning I want to go to church and thank Gd for freedom
with capital letters. #Quote by Diet Eman
Letters quotes by Carew Papritz
#116. It's not who you are, but what you're made of. It's not where you come from, but where you're going to. #Quote by Carew Papritz
Letters quotes by Cynthia Hand
#117. She delighted in the smell of the ink, the rough feel of the paper between her fingers, the rustle of sweet pages, the shapes of letters before her eyes. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Letters quotes by Haruki Murakami
#118. Generally, people who are good at writing letters have no need to write letters. They've got plenty of life to lead inside their own context. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Letters quotes by Elizabeth Kostova
#119. It's funny; in this era of e-mail and voice mail and all those things that even I did not grow up with, a plain old paper letter takes on amazing intimacy. #Quote by Elizabeth Kostova
Letters quotes by Jill Abramson
#120. When we first started, we would message all the time, ... He would log on, and mostly we would just message back and forth at the beginning of the relationship. Now, we use the computer, phones, letters, airlines - everything. #Quote by Jill Abramson
Letters quotes by Carl Sagan
#121. The first two letters of the name Pluto are the initials of Percival Lowell. Its symbol is , a planetary monogram. But Lowell's lifelong love was the planet Mars. He was electrified by the announcement in 1877 by an Italian astronomer, Giovanni Schiaparelli, of canali on Mars. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Letters quotes by J M G Le Clezio
#122. From his beach bag the man took an old penknife with a red handle and began to etch the signs of the letters onto nice flat pebbles. At the same time, he spoke to Mondo about everything there was in the letters, about everything you could see in them when you looked and when you listened. He spoke about A, which is like a big fly with its wings pulled back; about B, which is funny, with its two tummies; or C and D, which are like the moon, a crescent moon or a half-full moon; and then there was O, which was the full moon in the black sky. H is high, a ladder to climb up trees or to reach the roofs of houses; E and F look like a rake and a shovel; and G is like a fat man sitting in an armchair. I dances on tiptoes, with a little head popping up each time it bounces, whereas J likes to swing. K is broken like an old man, R takes big strides like a soldier, and Y stands tall, its arms up in the air, and it shouts: help! L is a tree on the river's edge, M is a mountain, N is for names, and people waving their hands, P is asleep on one paw, and Q is sitting on its tail; S is always a snake, Z is always a bolt of lightning, T is beautiful, like the mast on a ship, U is like a vase, V and W are birds, birds in flight; and X is a cross to help you remember. #Quote by J M G Le Clezio
Letters quotes by Annie Fellows Johnston
#123. That's all that death is ... Just a going away into another country ... Only the separation is harder to bear because there can be no letters to bridge the silence. #Quote by Annie Fellows Johnston
Letters quotes by Noah Galloway
#124. When Jamie left for basic training I knew exactly what I had to do. Of course, I knew what it feels like to be in basic training. I knew the best thing I could do for her was to write her letters. A lot of letters. What's funny is that when you write a letter you can feel like you've written so much, but that same letter can take two seconds to read.
I remember getting letters when I was in basic, and I'd read them and think, "Man, that's it? I read it too fast."
Contact from back home is so crucial. It means so much. I remembered how I felt. I remembered telling Brandi, "I don't care what you say. Just ramble. Ramble about your day."
She never grasped that. It was always just this one-page letter and then it was done. So after I got Jamie's address, I wrote to her every day. Every night after I put the kids to bed, I would write. I would tell her about everything that had happened--what I did, what the kids did, something funny one of them said. I just wrote as much as I could for several pages. Every night I wrote her novels and every morning I mailed them to her. #Quote by Noah Galloway
Letters quotes by Michael Kelahan
#125. In a man's letters, you know, madam, his soul lies naked. His letters are only the mirror of his heart. Whatever passes within him is there shown undisguised in its natural progress; nothing is invented, nothing distorted; you see systems in their elements, you discover action in their motives. Samuel Johnson to Mrs. Thrale (1777) #Quote by Michael Kelahan
Letters quotes by Frederick Franck
#126. This book is handwritten because, in its way, it is a love letter, and love letters should not be typeset by compositors or computers. #Quote by Frederick Franck
Letters quotes by Jarod Kintz
#127. My name represents me, but it's not who I am. It's just a collection of letters. Unfortunately, none of them are love letters. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Letters quotes by Michael Erard
#128. Knowing I might never visit the archives again, I had hit on a solution to get at Mezzofanti's proficiency: I'd count the letters he received in each language. If he got many, he must have been writing a lot, and that, maybe, pointed to a great deal of practice, then to a high degree of proficiency. It was a fair social science hypothesis.
I told Pasti about my plan. The librarian smirked at me. "You're a positivist, I think," he said. A positivist is someone who believes you can get at truths only through what can be counted, measured, and observed. I was shocked - I've been called names before, but never that. #Quote by Michael Erard
Letters quotes by David Levithan
#129. I don't think meaning is something that can be explained. You have to understand
hopeful and selectively blind as the next guy, but because I don't think meaning is something that can be explained. You have to understand
it on your own. It's like when you're starting to read. First, you learn the letters. Then, once you know what sounds the letters make, you use them to sound out words. You know that c-a-t leads to cat and d-o-g leads to dog. But then you have to make that extra leap, to understand that the word, the sound, the "cat" is connected to an actual cat, and that "dog" is connected to an actual dog. It's that leap, that understanding, that leads to meaning. And a lot of the time in life, we're still just sounding things out. We know the sentences and how to say them. We know the ideas and how to present them. We know the prayers and which words to say in what order. But that's only spelling. #Quote by David Levithan
Letters quotes by Major Owens
#130. We hope that the elected officials will respond positively to a ground swell of letters, phone calls, e-mails and visits from parents. The law clearly states that the responsibility for giving a sound basic education to our children lies with New York State. #Quote by Major Owens
Letters quotes by Bo Jackson
#131. So, I got a lot of recruitment letters from track. #Quote by Bo Jackson
Letters quotes by Sarah Ockler
#132. And in this moment of pale dawn in the hours before we leave California, I finally realize what has been the hardest thing for me about Matt's death. It isn't that I lost a brother, like Frankie, or a son, like Aunt Jayne and Uncle Red. The hardest thing is that I'll never know exactly what I lost, how much it should hurt, how long I should keep thinking about him. He took that mystery with him when he died, and a hundred thousand one-sided letters in my journal wouldn't have brought me any closer to the truth than I was the night I pressed my fingers to the sea glass he wore around his neck and kissed him back.
For over a year, the letters were my only connection to him; the only evidence that I didn't imagine our brief time as other. When I first saw my journal helplessly floating on the waves, I felt a loss so immediate and overwhelming it was like being back in the hospital lobby when the doctor told us they couldn't fix him. One minute, the journal was in my hands, soft and familiar and real; the next minute, it was gone.
Just like Matt.
And just like Matt, I need to let it go. #Quote by Sarah Ockler
Letters quotes by Christos Gage
#133. XANDER: No one writes letters anymore.
DRACULA: I do. With a quill pen and Higgins Eternal Ink in painstaking calligraphy. And what do I receive in return? Nothing! I will no be ignored! I am darkness made flesh! I am the lord of the night! I am Dracula! #Quote by Christos Gage
Letters quotes by Don DeLillo
#134. The alphabet is male and female. If you will know the correct order of letters, you make a world, you make creation. This is why they will hide the order. If you will know the combinations, you make all life and death. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Letters quotes by Patti Smith
#135. Vowels are the most illuminated letters in the alphabet. Vowels are the colors and souls of poetry and speech. (1976 Penthouse interview) #Quote by Patti Smith
Letters quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#136. A love letter can be very short or it can be long; it can be literary or non-literary; it can be bright or dark, cheerful or tragic. But above all, for a love letter to be a love letter it must be sincere! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Letters quotes by Gregory Colbert
#137. Letter 1
To the princess of the elephants,
I disappeared exactly one year ago. On that day I received a letter. It called me back to the place where my life with the elephants began
Please forgive me, for the silence between us has been unbroken for one year.
I will never be more of myself than in these letters.
They are my maps of the bird path, and they are all that I know to be true. #Quote by Gregory Colbert
Letters quotes by Louise Walters
#138. I find things hidden in books: dried flowers, locks of hair, tickets, labels, receipt, invoices, photographs, postcards, all manner of cards. I find letters, unpublished works by the ordinary, the anguished, the illiterate. Clumsily written or eloquent, they are love letters, everyday letters, secret letters and mundane letters talking about fruit and babies and tennis matches, from people signing themselves as Majorie or Jean....I can't bring myself to dispose of these snippets and snapshots of lives that once meant (or still do mean) so much. #Quote by Louise Walters
Letters quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#139. And anyway, the first three letters in the word diet should tell you what I want it to do. #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Letters quotes by A.B. Simpson
#140. I once saw a picture of the Constitution of the United States, very skillfully engraved in copper plate, so that when you looked at it closely it was nothing more than a piece of writing, but when you looked at it at a distance, it was the face of George Washington. The face shone out in the shading of the letters at a little distance, and I saw the person, not the words, nor the ideas; and I thought, "'That is the way to look at the Scriptures and understand the thoughts of God, to see in them the face of love, shining through and through; not ideas, nor doctrines, but Jesus Himself as the Life and Source and sustaining Presence of all our life. #Quote by A.B. Simpson
Letters quotes by National Geographic Society
#141. Words form the sinew and muscle that hold societies upright, he argued. Consider the Koran, the Bible, the American Constitution, but also letters from fathers to sons, last wills, blessings, curses. Thousands upon thousands of words infused with the full spectrum of emotions fill in the nooks and corners of human life. #Quote by National Geographic Society
Letters quotes by Mary Lascelles
#142. As for Elizabeth Bennet, our chief reason for accepting her point of view as a reflection of her author's is the impression that she bears of sympathy between them
an impression of which almost every reader would be sensible, even if it had not the explicit confirmation of Jane Austen's letters. Yet, as she is presented to us in Pride and Prejudice, she is but a partial and sometimes perverse observer. #Quote by Mary Lascelles
Letters quotes by Gail Carson Levine
#143. Father asks frequently in his letters whether I fancy any Ayorthaian young lady or any in our acquaintance at home. I say no I suppose I'm confessing another fault: pride. I don't want him to know that I love if my affections are not returned #Quote by Gail Carson Levine
Letters quotes by Margaret Atwood
#144. Most of us will. We'll choose knowledge no matter what, we'll maim ourselves in the process, we'll stick our hands into the flames for it if necessary. Curiosity is not our only motive: love or grief or despair or hatred is what drives us on. We'll spy relentlessly on the dead: we'll open their letters, we'll read their journals, we'll go through their trash, hoping for a hint, a final word, an explanation, from those who have deserted us--who've left us holding the bag, which is often a good deal emptier than we'd supposed.

But what about those who plant such clues, for us to stumble on? Why do they bother? Egotism? Pity? Revenge? A simple claim to existence, like scribbling your initials on a washroom wall? The combination of presence and anonymity--confession without penance, truth without consequences--it has its attractions. Getting the blood off your hands, one way or another.

Those who leave such evidence can scarcely complain if strangers come along afterwards and poke their noses into every single thing that would once have been none of their business. And not only strangers: lovers, friends, relations. We're voyeurs, all of us. Why should we assume that anything in the past is ours for the taking, simply because we've found it? We're all grave robbers, once we open the doors locked by others.

But only locked. The rooms and their contents have been left intact. If those leaving them had wanted oblivion, there was always fire. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Letters quotes by Joshua James
#145. You tried to so hard to forget me; you burnt the letters I made. Though my memory has been dying,
I hope the feeling still remains. Will you meet me in the middle someday? #Quote by Joshua James
Letters quotes by Howard Zinn
#146. History is instructive. And what it suggests to people is that even if they do little things, if they walk on the picket line, if they join a vigil, if they write a letter to their local newspaper. Anything they do, however small, becomes part of a much, much larger sort of flow of energy. And when enough people do enough things, however small they are, then change takes place. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Letters quotes by Stephen Fry
#147. But, I fear I spend far too little time apologising for or feeling ashamed about things which really do merit sincere apology and outright contrition.
•Failing to imagine what it is like to be someone else.
•Pissing my life away.
•Dishonesty with self and others.
•Neglecting to pick up the phone or write letters.
•Not connecting made or processed objects
•with their provenance.
•Judging without facts.
•Using influence over others for my own ends.
•Causing pain. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Letters quotes by Geoffrey Fisher
#148. I have asked myself once or twice lately what was my natural bent. I have no doubt at all: It is to look at each day for the evil of that day and have a go at it, and that is why I have never failed to have an acute interest in each morning's letters. #Quote by Geoffrey Fisher
Letters quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#149. If there were a way of putting an end to himself by some purely mental act he would put an end to himself at once, without further ado. His mind is full of stories of people who bring about their end - who methodically pay bills, write goodbye notes, burn old love letters, label keys, and then, once everything is in order, don their Sunday best and swallow down pills they have hoarded for the occasion and settle themselves on their neatly made beds and compose features for oblivion. Heroes all of them, unsung, unlauded. I am resolved not to be of any trouble. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Letters quotes by Walter Benjamin
#150. You have to have approached a place from all four cardinal points if you want to take it in, and what's more, you also have to have left it from all these points. Otherwise it will quite unexpectedly cross your path three or four times before you are prepared to discover it. One stage further, and you seek it out, you orient your-self by it. The same thing with houses. It is only after having crept along a series of them in search of a very specific one that you come to learn what they contain. From the arches of gates, on the frames of house doors, in letters of varying size, black, blue, yellow, red, in the shape of arrows or in the image of boots or freshly-ironed laundry or a word stoop or a stairway's solid landing, the life leaps out at you, combative, determined, mute. You have to have traveled the streets by streetcar to realize how this running battle con-tinues up along the various stories and finally reaches its decisive pitch on the roofs. #Quote by Walter Benjamin
Letters quotes by Kiersten White
#151. You have both been so busy learning tactics and studying battles, you have failed to see the truth of where thrones are won and lost. It is in the gossip, the words and letters passed in dark corners, the shadow alliances and the secret payments. You think I am worthless? I can do things you could never dream of. #Quote by Kiersten White
Letters quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#152. That letter was your whole future, you daft prince."
"It was my past. I lost that the night my parents died. But I found you, Deryn. Maybe I wasn't meant to end the war, but I was meant to find you. I know that. You've saved me from having any reason to keep going."
"We save each other. That's how it works. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Letters quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#153. When he was dressed, Stepan Arkadyevitch sprinkled some scent on himself, pulled down his shirt-cuffs, distributed into his pockets his cigarettes, pocketbook, matches, and watch with its double chain and seals, and shaking out his handkerchief, feeling himself clean, fragrant, healthy, and physically at ease, in spite of his unhappiness, he walked with a slight swing on each leg into the dining-room, where coffee was already waiting for him, and beside the coffee, letters and papers from the office. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy

#158. There have been times when I've written something and it goes out and it comes back in a letter from some kid as to what they think about it and I've taken their analysis to heart so much that I have taken up his thing. Writing what my audience is telling me to write. #Quote by David Bowie
Letters quotes by Paul Theroux
#159. I can't predict how reading habits will change. But I will say that the greatest loss is the paper archive - no more a great stack of manuscripts, letters, and notebooks from a writer's life, but only a tiny pile of disks, little plastic cookies where once were calligraphic marvels. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Letters quotes by Dean Koontz
#160. The dog chose more letters, waited for them to study the words, then looked solemnly at each of them to be sure they understood what he meant: I WOULD DIE OF LONELY. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Letters quotes by P. W. Singer
#161. When a robot dies, you don't have to write a letter to its mother, #Quote by P. W. Singer
Letters quotes by Paul Reiser
#162. The simple combination of letters and sounds you select as a name for your baby can result in a life of carefree coolness or decades of expensive therapy. Hi, I'm Jake versus Hi, I'm ... Tapioca #Quote by Paul Reiser
Letters quotes by Simone Elkeles
#163. Two dads have sent me letters that said my books changed their daughters' lives. I send them packages with T-shirts and posters because, come on ... that's the coolest. #Quote by Simone Elkeles
Letters quotes by H.S. Ede
#164. The world is corrupt, and the way for me to make it better is not by writing letters, but joining my efforts with those of others to produce a work of beauty. #Quote by H.S. Ede
Letters quotes by Isabel Allende
#165. I get thousands of letters, and they give me a feeling of how each book is perceived. Often I think I have written about a certain theme, but by reading the letters or reviews, I realise that everybody sees the book differently. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Letters quotes by Washington Irving
#166. Critics are a kind of freebooters in the republic of letters
who, like deer, goats and divers other graminivorous animals, gain subsistence by gorging upon buds and leaves of the young shrubs of the forest, thereby robbing them of their verdure, and retarding their progress to maturity. #Quote by Washington Irving
Letters quotes by Michael Laudrup
#167. I had to wait nine days for a letter that said a lot of very silly things. #Quote by Michael Laudrup
Letters quotes by Kate Williams
#168. Usually, historical revelations come from days of legwork, ploughing through piles of letters and papers in archives or even private homes, looking for the telling phrase or letter that someone else has missed. #Quote by Kate Williams
Letters quotes by Jarod Kintz
#169. It's a lie. There isn't safety in numbers. But there is safety in letters. There are only 26 letters, and yet they are more powerful than an army of infinite men. Show me a man or an army that can kill an idea, and I'll show you an example of the absurd. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Letters quotes by Kate Williams
#170. I receive many letters from people hoping to research their own houses. #Quote by Kate Williams
Letters quotes by Sharad Vivek Sagar
#171. Our parents are the coolest parents ever. No other generation went on from writing letters to their own parents to sending snapchats to their own kids. #Quote by Sharad Vivek Sagar
Letters quotes by Truman Capote
#172. Never demean yourself by talking back to a critic, never. Write those letters to the editor in your head, but don't put them on paper. #Quote by Truman Capote
Letters quotes by Sarah Cross
#173. Mira shrugged. If Rachel thought long-distance romance was weird, she'd think the truth - a fake long-distance romance, complete with eight months' worth of love letters that Mira had written to cover her tracks - was a whole lot weirder. #Quote by Sarah Cross
Letters quotes by Muriel Siebert
#174. If I was dealing with a trader, every other word had to be a four-letter word. #Quote by Muriel Siebert
Letters quotes by Thomas De Witt Talmage
#175. The Bible is a warm letter of affection from a parent to a child; and yet there are many who see chiefly the severer passages. As there may be fifty or sixty nights of gentle dews in one summer, that will not cause as much remark as one hailstorm of half an hour, so there are those who are more struck by those passages of the Bible that announce the indignation of God than by those that announce His affection. #Quote by Thomas De Witt Talmage
Letters quotes by Nick Cave
#176. Be mindful of the prayers you send
pray hard but pray with care
for the tears you are crying now are just your answered prayers
letters of light we scale merrily, move mysteriously around
so that when you think you're climbing up, man, in fact you're climbing down #Quote by Nick Cave
Letters quotes by Cara McKenna
#177. It's a sign of weakness to feel stuff, in prison. To care. To admit you're lonely, or sad, or that you're aching for somebody. Writing to you was the only time I got to get that stuff out of me. I just wrote down whatever needed to come out."
"I think you may be the most romantic man I've ever met."
"Give yourself some credit. I don't write letters like that to just anybody. #Quote by Cara McKenna
Letters quotes by Mary Kay Zuravleff
#178. Math-thinking, I would say, encourages flipping and substituting letters in words (in the novel, one of the boys double-majors in math and myth, for example, and his twin cracks a joke about the father's handwriting that morphs "cacography" into "dadography"). #Quote by Mary Kay Zuravleff
Letters quotes by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
#179. I love letters from little kids. Adults never proclaim themselves 'your #1 fan! #Quote by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
Letters quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#180. Love may be an inexhaustible well of inspiration for writing loads of letters until the wind of unresponsiveness blows frostiness into the fold of expectations.( "Poste restante" ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Letters quotes by Robert Southey
#181. Faith in the hereafter is as necessary for the intellectual as the moral character; and to the man of letters, as well as to the Christian, the present forms but the slightest portion of his existence. #Quote by Robert Southey
Letters quotes by John Dos Passos
#182. U. S. A. is the slice of a continent. U. S. A. is a group of holding companies, some aggregations of trade unions, a set of laws bound in calf, a radio network, a chain of moving picture theatres, a column of stockquotations rubbed out and written in by a Western Union boy on a blackboard, a public-library full of old newspapers and dogeared historybooks with protests scrawled on the margins in pencil. U. S. A. is the world's greatest rivervalley fringed with mountains and hills, U. S. A. is a set of bigmouthed officials with too many bankaccounts. U. S. A. is a lot of men buried in their uniforms in Arlington Cemetery. U. S. A. is the letters at the end of an address when you #Quote by John Dos Passos
Letters quotes by Howard G. Hendricks
#183. That's the way to come to the Word of God. Read it as though it were His love letter to you. #Quote by Howard G. Hendricks
Letters quotes by Larry The Cable Guy
#184. Bought a pair of boots the other day, and they was some silicone gel in there. Big red letters said, "Do not eat." Do they really need that stuff in them boots? Is there really some dude opening a pair of boots goin', "Boy, look at them boots. What the hell? I better eat that. I don't know what the hell that is." #Quote by Larry The Cable Guy
Letters quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#185. Every letter was a love letter. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Letters quotes by Leonard Cohen
#186. Dearest Shell,
If you let me I'd always keep you 400 miles away and write you pretty poems and letters ... I'm afraid to live anywhere but in expectation. #Quote by Leonard Cohen
Letters quotes by Cait Doolittle
#187. I don't know when I'll get to send you another balloon. I know it probably won't get to you. You've never answered and I know that even if you got my letters, you could never write back. #Quote by Cait Doolittle
Letters quotes by Lauren Blakely
#188. Lover of love. I adore love letters, and professions of love, and true, heartfelt moments when two people know they're meant for each other. #Quote by Lauren Blakely
Letters quotes by Colin Wilson
#189. It is far easier to write an angry letter than to go and say angry things to another person - because as soon as we look in one another's faces we can see the other point of view. #Quote by Colin Wilson
Letters quotes by Marion Husband
#190. I've been absent from you too long. I miss you so badly and yet this being apart makes me realise you're not simply the faithful man who loves me so astonishingly well, but an angel, sent for some unfathomable reason to look out for me. I should have realised this truth years ago because you are so extraordinary, so unlike other men, so unlike me, this weak, vain, faithless creature you have been so intent on saving from himself. I should have realised from the first moment I saw you in that trench, when I fell so badly in love with you and hoped you wouldn't notice. Or perhaps not then, but later, when you saved my life so often just by lending me courage when I was half-mad from fear. How much courage you had to spare – I will never forget. But angels are courageous, aren't they? I should know. I have never understood why I deserved such grace.

I don't have your faith, Patrick, or your love of God. I am uncertain and afraid, I wish you were with me now, not just in spirit, as I know you are and always have been, but here in body. I need to cower behind you, because if God is real He might be kinder knowing you loved me.

If angels need to pray, pray for me. #Quote by Marion Husband
Letters quotes by Nick Hornby
#191. To me, making a tape is like writing a letter – there's a lot of erasing and rethinking and starting again, and I wanted it to be a good one. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Letters quotes by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
#192. Open the "book of life" and you will see a "text" of about 3 billion letters, filling about 10,000 copies of the new York Times Sunday edition. Each line looks something like this:
TCTAGAAACA ATTGCCATTG TTTCTTCTCA TTTTCTTTTC ACGGGCAGCC
These letters, abbreviations of the molecules making up the DNA, could easily mean that the anonymous donor whose genome has been sequenced will be bald by the age of fifty. Or they could reveal that he will develop Alzheimer's disease by seventy. We are repeatedly told that everything from our personality to future medical history is encoded in this book. Can you read it? I doubt it. Let me share a secret with you: Neither can biologists or doctors. #Quote by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
Letters quotes by Dean Koontz
#193. On the third, directly before me, were embedded more polished letters: PER OMNIA SAECULA SAECULORUM.
For ever and ever.
In the red light, the brushed steel glowed softly, like embers. The polish letters blazed.
Without a hiss, For ever and ever slid aside, as though inviting me to eternity. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Letters quotes by Warren Buffett
#194. Read Ben Graham and Phil Fisher read annual reports, but don't do equations with Greek letters in them. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Letters quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#195. For my part, I could easily do without the post-office. I think that there are very few important communications made through it. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Letters quotes by Philip Larkin
#196. So many things I had thought forgotten
Return to my mind with stranger pain:
Like letters that arrive addressed to someone
Who left the house so many years ago. #Quote by Philip Larkin
Letters quotes by John C. Wright
#197. In my story I do not deal in Absolute Evil. I do not think there is such a thing, since that is Zero. - The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien, no. 183 #Quote by John C. Wright
Letters quotes by Diane Setterfield
#198. When you read a manuscript that has been damaged by water, fire, light or just the passing of the years, your eye needs to study not just the shape of the letters but other marks of production. The speed of the pen. The pressure of the hand on the page. Breaks and releases in the flow. You must relax. Think of nothing. Until you wake into a dream where you are at once a pen flying of vellum and the vellum itself with the touch of ink tickling your surface. Then you can read it. The intention of the writer, his thoughts, his hesitations, his longings and his meaning. You can read as clearly as if you were the very candlelight illuminating the page as the pen speeds over it. #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Letters quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#199. The word "happy" had started to sound wrong in Darcy's head, like a random collection of Scrabble letters. "What about #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
