Love letters

"Nowadays, people, lovers, don't write love letters to each other anymore. They just pick up the phone and say, 'Are you free tonight? Shall we go out?' That's all, and you have nothing to keep. That is a pity. We must learn to write love letters again. Write to your beloved one, he may be your father or your son. She may be your daughter, your mother, your sister or your friend. Take time to write down your gratitude and love."--Thich Nhat Hanh, from Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames
