Famous quotes containing the word kissed:

    Once one has kissed a cadaver’s forehead, there always remains something of it on the lips, an infinite bitterness, an aftertaste of nothingness that nothing can erase.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    Of what is real I say,
    Is it the old, the roseate parent or
    The bride come jingling, kissed and cupped, or else
    The spirit and all ensigns of the self?
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Can love be controlled by advice?
    Will Cupid our mothers obey?
    Though my heart were as frozen as ice,
    At his flame ‘twould have melted away.
    When he kissed me so closely he pressed,
    ‘Twas so sweet that I must have complied:
    So I thought it both safest and best
    To marry, for fear you should chide.
    John Gay (1685–1732)
