Wistful Wednesday

Let's Talk About Love


What is love without some heartfelt declarations of the emotion? Nothing, I tell you. So let us explore some fine examples of literary declarations of love. Let us start with the letter in which Captain Wentworth declares his affections for Anne Elliot in Jane Austen's wonderful little novel, Persuasion:


I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine. I can hardly write. I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. Too good, too excellent creature! You do us justice, indeed. You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in

F. W.


Now there was a man who knew how to declare himself, don't you agree? You pierce my soul, indeed!

And how about these little displays of affection?





I hope you enjoyed these little displays of love and affection! Until next time...

What great clips. Though I didn't enjoy Anne 3 as much as the previous Anne movies, those are some wonderful moments from the film.
