Famous quotes containing the words letter to and/or letter:

    This is my letter to the World
    That never wrote to Me—
    The simple News that Nature told—
    With tender Majesty.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    With the nippers to wheel round the houses
    And the hall to paint in his old trousers
    And that letter to her mother
    Saying Won’t you come for the summer.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
