“I don’t know how to tell you, how much I miss you. I love you until my heart explodes. Everything I love, everything I want, everything I need is you.”
Marilyn Monroe to Joe Dimaggio

“Nothing compares to your hands, nothing like the green-gold of your eyes. My body is filled with you for days and days. You are the mirror of night. The violent flash of lightning. The dampness of the earth. The hollow of your armpits is my shelter. My fingers touch your blood. All my joy is to feel life spring from your flower-fountain that mine keeps to fill all the paths of my nerves which are yours”.
Frida Kahlo to Diego Rivera
“And if I’m writing to you like this, it is not for you to understand me, but to feel me a bit closer to you, as, if it was possible, to caress you. Nothing else”.
Giorgos Seferis to Maro
It will also give us such pleasure, if anybody from our guests, who owns an interesting personal love letter, would like to share it with us, in “love letters”.
