Letter-writing quotations from writers

More than kisses letters mingle souls.

~John Donne


Or don't you like to write letters? I do because it's such a swell way to keep from working and yet feel you've done something.

~Ernest Hemingway


A letter is never ill-timed; it never interrupts. Instead it waits for us to find the opportune minute, the quiet moment to savor the message. There is an element of timelessness about letter writing.

~Loise Wyse


Letter writing is the only device combining solitude with good company.

~Lord Byron
