If a body meet a body going to the Fair,
  If a body kiss a body need a body care?
      - James C. Cross,
        written for the pantomime "Harlequin Mariner"

Since there's no help, come let us kiss and part.
      - Michael Drayton, Sonnet

I felt the while a pleasing kind of smart,
  The kiss went tingling to my very heart;
    When it was gone the sense of it did stay,
      The sweetness cling'd upon my lips all day,
        Like drops of honey loth to fall away.
      - John Dryden

Oh! let me live forever on those lips!
  The nectar of the gods to these is tasteless.
      - John Dryden

Once more for pity, that I may keep the flavor upon my lips till we meet again.
      - John Dryden

She brought her cheek up close, and leaned on his; at which he whispered kisses back on hers.
      - John Dryden

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
      - Albert Einstein

That farewell kiss which resembles greeting, that last glance of love which becomes the sharpest pang of sorrow.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

Kisses honeyed by oblivion.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Spanish Gypsy
         (bk. III, l. 251 from end of bk.)

It was thy kiss, Love, that made me immortal.
      - Margaret Witter Fuller, Dryad Song

A pleasing trembling thrills through all my blood
  Whene'er you touch me with your melting hand;
    But when you kiss, oh! 'tis not to be spoke.
      - Charles Gildon

All the legislation in the world will not abolish kissing.
      - Elinor Glyn

The kiss you take is paid by that you give:
  The joy is mutual, and I'm still in debt.
      - George Granville, Lord Landsdowne,
        Heroic Love (act V, sc. 1)

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 (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

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 the receipt of fulfilment. Is it strange, therefore, that a woman is invincible, whose armory consists of kisses, smiles, and tears?
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

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--Prologue
         (no. 25, st. 2)

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

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

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.

People who throw kisses are hopelessly lazy.
      - Bob Hope (Leslie Townes Hope)

Then press my lips, where plays a flame of bliss,--
  A pure and holy love-light,--and forsake
    The angel for the woman in a kiss,
      At once I wis,
        My soul will wake!
      - Victor Hugo, Come When I Sleep

Jenny kissed me when we wet,
  Jumping from the chair she sat in;
    Time, you thief, you love to get
      Sweets into your list, put that in.
        Say I'm weary, say I'm sad,
          Say that health and wealth have missed me;
            Say I'm growing old, but add
              Jenny kissed me.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt),
        Jenny Kissed Me,
        ("Jenny" was Mrs. Carlyle)

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

Or leave a kiss but in the cup, and I'll not look for wine.
      - Ben Jonson

Drink to me only with thine eyes,
  And I will pledge with mine;
    Or leave a kiss but in the cup,
      And I'll not look for wine.
      - Ben Jonson, The Forest--Song to Celia
