“My dearest Heart,
Goodness knows when all my various letters will reach you or in what order…I will tell you again that your letters are unspeakably precious…Okay darling darling love. I will never get used to these separations. I miss you every minute of the time…” — Fragments of a love letter from Vivien Leigh to Laurence Olivier, 1943
