-Tennyson, Idylls of the King No more subtle master under heaven
Than is the maiden passion for a maid,
Not only to keep down the base in man
But teach high thought and amiable words
And courtliness and the desire of fame
And love of truth and all that makes a man. -Tennyson, Idylls of the King: Guinevere

-Mason Cooley Romance is tempestuous. Love is calm. -Mason Cooley

-John Gay, The Beggar’s Opera And I would love you all the Day,
Every Night would kiss and play,
If with me you’d fondly stray
Over the Hills and far away. -John Gay, The Beggar’s Opera

-Mistinguett A kiss can be a comma, a question mark or an exclamation point. That’s basic spelling that every woman ought to know. -Mistinguett

-F. Scott Fitzgerald The kiss originated when the first male reptile licked the first female reptile, implying in a subtle, complimentary way that she was as succulent as the small reptile he had for dinner the night before. -F. Scott Fitzgerald

-Edmund Spenser Coming to kiss her lips, (such grace I found,)
Meseem’d, I smelt a garden of sweet flowers -Edmund Spenser

-Frank Loesser That little kiss you stole held all my heart and soul. -Frank Loesser, Heart and Soul

-John Gay But his kiss was so sweet, and so closely he pressed,
That I languished and pined till I granted the rest. -John Gay, The Beggar’s Opera

-Henry David Thoreau The deeds of love are less questionable than any action of an individual can be, for, it being founded on the rarest mutual respect, the parties incessantly stimulate each other to a loftier and purer life, and the act in which they are associated must be pure and noble indeed, for innocence and purity can have no equal. In this relation we deal with one whom we respect more religiously even than we respect our better selves, and we shall necessarily conduct as in the presence of God. What presence can be more awe-ful to the lover than the presence of his beloved? -Henry David Thoreau

-Doug Horton Burning desire is the eternal flame. -Doug Horton
