Valentine’s Day is upon us, and it’s time to show your significant other that you really care.
But we know how hard coming up with the right words can be. So if you’re looking for a little inspiration, take a lesson from some of history’s greatest orators.
We’ve compiled a collection of the 11 greatest presidential love letters of all time. If these don’t get your creative juices flowing, we don’t know what will. Hallmark’s got nothing on these guys.
'Please go to ride with us this evening, precious little girl, so that I can whisper something in your ear -- something of my happiness and love, and accept this, in the meantime, as a piece out of my very heart, which is all yours but cannot be sent as I wish to send it by letter.'
-- Woodrow Wilson to Edith Bolling
'Miss Adorable, By the same Token that the Bearer hereof sat up with you last night I hereby order you to give him, as many Kisses, and as many Hours of your Company after 9 O'Clock as he shall please to Demand and charge them to my Account...'
-- John Adams to Abigail Adams

-- Theodore Roosevelt to Alice Hathaway Lee
