About the book

An elegant collection of quotes highlighting the many passionate ways writers have declared their loves:

“Dearest, I wish I had the gift of making rhymes, 
for methinks there is poetry in my head and
heart since I have been in love with you.
You are a poem.”
– Nathaniel Hawthorne to Sophie Hawthorne

“From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
But today I have seen it.”
– Rumi, from “Looking for your face”
