Kissing with inside lip? stopping the career
  Of laughter with a sigh?

You cannot analyze a kiss any more than you can dissect the fragrance of flowers.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

Kiss me, so long but as a kiss my live;
  And in my heartless breast and burning brain
    That word, that kiss shall all thoughts else survive,
      With food of saddest memory kept alive.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, Adonais (st. 26)

As in the soft and sweet eclipse,
  When soul meets soul on lover's lips.

My lips till then had only known
  The kiss of mother and of sister,
    But somehow, full upon her own
      Sweet, rosy, darling mouth,--I kissed her.
      - Edmund Clarence Stedman, The Door-Step

My love and I for kisses played;
  She would keep stakes: I was content;
    But when I won she would be paid;
      This made me ask her what she meant.
        Pray, since I see (quoth she) "your wrangling vain,
          Take your kisses; give me mine again."
      - Dr. William Strode, Verses,
        in "Gentleman's Magazine", July, 1823

Lord! I wonder what fool it was that first invented kissing.

Sweeter than the stolen kiss
  Are the granted kisses.

Once he drew
  With one long kiss my whole soul thro'
    My lips, as sunlight drinketh dew.

Girl, when he gives you kisses twain,
  Use one, and let the other stay;
    And hoard it, for moons may die, red fades,
      And you may need a kiss--some day.
      - Frederic Ridgely Torrence,
        House of a Hundred Lights

Kisses are like grains of gold or silver found upon the ground, of no value themselves, but precious as showing that a mine is near.
      - George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham

Kiss the tear from her lip, you'll find the rose
  The sweeter for the dew.

A kiss from my mother made me a painter.
