Love Letters of Great Men

by Maryann Pisano on January 27, 2015


Marlon Brando:

Dear Lady —

There is something not quite definable in your face — something lovely, not pretty in a conventionally thought of way. You have something graceful and tender and feminine (sp). You seem to be a woman who has been loved in her childhood, or else, somehow by the mystery of genetic phenomena you have been visited by the gifts of refinement, dignity and poise. Perhaps you cannot be accredited with all that.

Irrespective of your gothic aspects, you have passed something on in terms of your expression, mien and general comportment that is unusual and rewarding.

It’s been a pleasant if brief encounter and I wish you well and I hope we shall have occasion to cross eyes again sometime.

Best wishes

Marlon Brando


Johnny Cash:

Frances! I am so lonely I can hardly bear it. As one needs happiness so have I needed love; that is the deepest need of the human spirit. And as I love you utterly, so have you now become the whole world of my spirit. It is beside and beyond anything that you can ever do for me; it lies in what you are, dear love — to me so infinitely lovely that to be near you, to see you, hear you, is now the only happiness, the only life, I know. How long these hours are alone!

Yet is good for me to know the measure of my love and need, that I may at least be brought to so govern myself as never to lose the love and trust that you have given me.

Dear Frances, let us make and keep our love more beautiful than any love has ever been before.

Forever, dearest one.




Jimi Hendrix:

little girl…..

happiness is within you….so unlock the chains from your heart and let yourself grow— like the sweet flower you are….. I know the answer— Just spread your wings and set yourself FREE

Love to you forever

Jimi Hendrix


Van Gogh:

Life has become very dear to me, and I am very glad  that I love. My life and my love are one. “But you are faced with a ‘no,  never never'” is your reply. My answer to that is, “Old boy, for the  present I look upon that ‘no, never never’ as a block of ice which I press to  my heart to thaw.” Vincent Van Gogh, famous French artist to Theo, his  brother, describing his passion for his cousin, Kee. She never withdrew from  her position of ‘no, never never’.

Ever thine.
Ever mine.
Ever ours.
