Pen to Paper: Quotes on Letter Writing

So I know not all of you celebrate Christmas or maybe not any holiday at all this time of year, so I wanted to break away from the rush of holiday posts. Today I want to inspire you to add writing more letters to your resolutions or goals for the new year. I found some really great quotes that I wanted to share with all of you today for that little bit of inspiration.
"Or don't you like to write letters?  I do because it's such a swell way to keep from working and yet feel you've done something." - Ernest Hemingway. 
To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.  ~Phyllis Theroux


Letter writing is the only device for combining solitude with good company.  ~Lord Byron
This one really got me going, I am the first to admit I am an introvert but I still love connecting with people, just maybe not face to face.

What a wonderful thing is the mail, capable of conveying across continents a warm human hand-clasp.  ~Author Unknown
What a lot we lost when we stopped writing letters.  You can't reread a phone call.  ~Liz Carpenter
I hope one of these few quotes inspires you to take up written correspondence or revisit it a little more frequently.  Maybe pick one of those quotes and add it to some place you see often to remind you to sit down and connect with someone on paper.
