-Thomas Chandler Haliburton, on Kisses It is as old as the creation, and yet as young and fresh as ever. It pre-existed, still exists, and always will exist. Depend upon it, Eve learned it in Paradise, and was taught its beauties, virtues, and varieties by an angel, there is something so transcendent in it. -Thomas Chandler Haliburton, on Kisses

-Heinrich Heine Tell me who first did kisses suggest?
It was a mouth all glowing and blest;
It kissed and it thought of nothing beside.
The fair month of May was then in its pride,
The flowers were all from the earth fast springing,
The sun was laughing, the birds were singing. -Heinrich Heine, Book of Songs -New Spring

-Robert Herrick What is a kisse? Why this, as some approve:
The sure sweet cement, glue, and lime of love. -Robert Herrick, Hesperides - A Kiss

-Robert Herrick Give me a kisse, and to that kisse a score;
Then to that twenty, adde a hundred more;
A thousand to that hundred; so kiss on,
To make that thousand up a million;
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let's kisse afresh, as when we first begun. -Robert Herrick, Hesperides -To Anthea

-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a deal longer. -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

-Douglas William Jerrold He kissed her and promised. Such beautiful lips! Man's usual fate, -he was lost upon the coral reefs. -Douglas William Jerrold

-Ben Jonson A soft lip,
Would tempt you to eternity of kissing! -Ben Jonson, Volpone

-John Keats I came to feel how far above
All fancy, pride, and fickle maidenhood,
All earthly pleasure, all imagined good,
Was the warm tremble of a devout kiss. -John Keats

-Walter Savage Landor It is delightful to kiss the eyelashes of the beloved -is it not? But never so delightful as when fresh tears are on them. -Walter Savage Landor

-Ninon de L'Enclos, describing a kiss The blossom of love. -Ninon de L'Enclos, describing a kiss
