#TrueLoveThursdays: Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Today's #Truelovethursdays post (where we share a classic movie or literary quote each Thursday to get your hearts all aflutter), is brought to you by Robert Browning. It's an excerpt of a longer love letter written to his wife Elizabeth Barrett Browning shortly after their wedding:

*"You will only expect a few words, what will those be?

When the heart is full it may run over, but the real fullness stays within. You asked me yesterday "if I should repent?"

Yes, my own Ba, I could with all the past were to do over again, that in it I might somewhat more, never so little more, conform in the outward homage, to the inward feeling, What I have professed, (for I have performed nothing) seems to fall short of what my first love required even, and when I think of this moment's love...I could repent, as I say.

Words can never tell you, however, form them, transform them anyway, how perfectly dear you are to me, perfectly dear to my heart and soul.

I look back, and in every one point, every word and gesture, every letter, every silence, you have been entirely perfect to me, I would not change one word, one look.

My hope and aim are to preserve this love, not to fall from it, for which I trust to God who procured it for me, and doubtless can preserve it.

Enough now, my dearest, dearest, own Ba!

You have given me the highest, completest proof of love that ever one human being gave another. I am all gratitude, and all pride (under the proper feeling which ascribes pride to the right source) all pride that my life has been so crowned by you.

God bless you prays your very own R."*

#TrueLoveThursdays: e.e. Cummings and a Special Offer!

Today's #Truelovethursdays post (where we share a classic movie or literary quote each Thursday to get your hearts all aflutter), is brought to you by E.E. Cummings.

"Silently, if out of not knowable night's utmost nothing, wanders a little guess (only which is this world) more my life does not leap than with the mystery your smile

sings or if (spiralling as luminous they climb oblivion) voices who are dreams, less into heaven certainly earth swims than each my deeper death becomes your kiss

losing through you what seemed myself, I find selves unimaginable mine; beyond sorrow's own joys and hoping's very fears

yours is the light by which my spirit's born: yours is the darkness of my soul's return - you are my sun, my moon and all my stars."
