The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.
-Emil Ludwig (1881-1948)
…then I did the simplest thing in the world.
I leaned down… and kissed him.
And the world cracked open.
-Agnes de Mille, b. 1905-
That farewell kiss which resembles greeting, that last glance of love which becomes the sharpest pang of sorrow.
-George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans] (1819-1880)
“Greet ye one another
with a kiss of charity…
I Peter 5:14KJV The Bible
A man snatches the first kiss,
pleads for the second, demands the third,
takes the fourth, accepts the fifth –
and endures all the rest.
Where one drop of blood drains a castle of life, so one kiss can bring it alive again.
-The Sleeping Beauty
A kiss is the shortest distance between two.
Her lips on his could tell him better than all her stumbling words. -Mitchell
Women still remember the first kiss after men have forgotten the last. -Gourmont
I have found men who didn’t know how to kiss. I’ve always found time to teach them.
– Mae West
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
– Ingrid Bergman
There is the kiss of welcome and of parting, the long, lingering, loving,
present one; the stolen, or the mutual one;
the kiss of love, of joy, and of sorrow;
the seal of promise and receipt of fulfillment.
-Thomas C. Haliburotn (1796-1865)
If you are ever in doubt as to whether or not to kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.
You may conquer with the sword,
but you are conquered by a kiss.
-Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655)
The moment eternal – just that and no more –
When ecstasy’s utmost we clutch at the core
While cheeks burn, arms open, eyes shut, and lips meet!
– Robert Browning (1812-1889)
