I don't think I'm going to go for my usual kind of post today. Instead, something for those who really understand the importance of the kiss...
The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.
A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
Da mi bassia mille, deinde centum, dein mille altera. (Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred, then a thousand more.)
This kiss, the first real one of my life, seemed more intimate than anything I'd ever experienced.
The universe hangs on a kiss, exists in the hold of a kiss.
A kiss is like a veil falling from my face, like the sun's radiance as it peers between two clouds. A kiss from your lips is the essence of my life.
