Mark Twain - One of the most prolific American writers used his pen to get his ladies. This is a short but quite romantic work. Whatever woman received this was quite lucky and surely happy.

Napoleon (1797) - Another fantastic writing by the great leader of France.
Van Gogh - A great artist of all types. Of course, he was a bit weird. This was written to his brother about his cousin. Yikes! Although, it was much more common during that period.
Voltaire - A great thinker thought his way to writing this amazing letter to his own love.

We simply have different means of going about it.
