Famous quotes containing the word letter:

    I have never injured anybody with a mordant poem; my
    verse contains charges against nobody. Ingenuous, I have
    shunned wit steeped in venom—not a letter of mine is dipped
    in poisonous jest.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    I prefer to make no new declarations [on southern policy beyond what was in the Letter of Acceptance]. But you may say, if you deem it advisable, that you know that I will stand by the friendly and encouraging words of that Letter, and by all that they imply. You cannot express that too strongly.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    A letter from home is worth ten thousand ounces of gold.
    Chinese proverb.
