Thou knowest the maiden who ventures to kiss a sleeping man, wins of him a pair of gloves.
      - Sir Walter Scott, The Fair Maid of Perth
         (ch. V)

Yell whoop. Jack! Kiss Gillian the quicker,
  Till she bloom like a rose, and a fig for the vicar!
      - Sir Walter Scott, The Lady of the Lake
         (VI, 5)

And steal immortal kisses from her lips; which even in pure and vestal modesty still blush as thinking their own kisses sin.
      - William Shakespeare

Give me one kiss, I'll give it to thee again;
  And one for interest, if thou wilt have twain.
      - William Shakespeare

Now by the jealous queen of heaven, that kiss I carried from thee, dear; my true lip hath virgined it ever since.
      - William Shakespeare

Then kissed me hard, as if he plucked up kisses by the roots, that grew upon my lips.
      - William Shakespeare

Touch but my lips with those fair lips of thine,
  (Though mine be not so fair, yet are they red)
    The kiss shall be thine own as well as mine--
      What seest thou in the ground? hold up thy head;
        Look in mine eyeballs; there thy beauty lies;
          Then why not lips on lips, since eyes in eyes?
      - William Shakespeare

With this kiss take my blessing. God protect thee!
      - William Shakespeare

Faith, yes--
  Strangers and foes do sunder, and not kiss.
      - William Shakespeare,
        All's Well That Ends Well
         (Helena at II, v)

The greater cantle of the world is lost
  With very ignorance; we have kissed away
    Kingdoms and provinces.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra

He hath a pair of cast lips of Diana. A nun of winter's sisterhood kisses not more religiously; the very ice of chastity is in then.
      - William Shakespeare, As You Like It
         (Celia at III, iii)

And his kissing is as full of sanctity as the touch of holy bread.
      - William Shakespeare, As You Like It
         (Rosalind at III, iv)

O, a kiss
  Long as my exile, sweet as my revenge!
    Now, by the jealous queen of heaven, that kiss
      I carried from thee dear; and my true lip
        Hath virgined it e'er since.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Coriolanus at V, iii)

. . . or ere I could
  Give him that parting kiss which I had set
    Betwixt two charming words--comes in my father,
      And like the tyrannous breathing of the north
        Shakes all our buds from growing.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Imogen at I, iii)

I understand thy kisses, and thou mine,
  And that's a feeling disputation.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Mortimer at III, i)

Take, O take those lips away,
  That so sweetly were forsworn;
    And those eyes, the break of day,
      Lights that do mislead the morn;
        But my kisses bring again, bring again,
          Seals of love, but sealed in vain, sealed in vain.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Singing Boy at IV, i)

But thou know'st this,
  'Tis time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss.

        Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I, ii)

They may seize
  On the white wonder of dear Juliet's hand
    And steal immortal blessing from her lips,
      Who, even in pure and vestal modesty,
        Still blush, as thinking their own kisses sin;
          But Romeo may not, he is banished.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Romeo at III, iii)

I had good argument for kissing once.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The History of Troilus and Cressida

I'll take that winter from your lips, fair lady.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The History of Troilus and Cressida
         (Achilles at IV, v)

Upon thy cheek lay I this zealous kiss,
  A seal to this indenture of my love,
    That to my home I will no more return
      Till Angiers and the right thou hast in France,
        Together with that pale, that white-faced shore,
          Whose foot spurns back the ocean's roaring tides
            And coops from other lands her islanders,
              Even till that England, hedged in with the main,
                That water-walled bulwark, still secure
                  And confident from foreign purposes,
                    Even till that utmost corner of the west
                      Salute thee for her king.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Austria at II, i)

It is not a fashion for the maids in France to kiss before they are married, would she say?
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at V, ii)

This done, he took his bride about the neck
  And kissed her lips with such a clamorous smack
    That at the parting all the church did echo.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Gremio at III, ii)

Teach not thy lip such scorn; for it was made
  For kissing, lady, not for such contempt.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at I, ii)

Their lips were four red roses on a stalk,
  Which in their summer beauty kissed each other.
