A Quote by Philip James Bailey on beauty, darkness, god, good, happiness, heaven, kiss, and love

Ask not of me, love, what is love? Ask what is good of God above- Ask of the great sun what is light- Ask what is darkness of the night- Ask sin of what may be forgiven- Ask what is happiness of Heaven- Ask what is sweetness of thy kiss- Ask of thyself what beauty is.

A Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley on garden, kiss, and plants

A sensitive plant in a garden grew, And the young winds fed it with silver dew, And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light, And closed them beneath the kisses of night.

A Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes on kiss


The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer.

Here lies my past. Good-bye I have kissed it; Thank you, kids. I wouldn't have missed it.

A Quote by Neil Gaiman on body, darkness, day, friendship, heart, imagination, justice, kiss, life, love, mind, pain, simplicity, soul, and stupidity

Have you even been in love? Horrible, isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life . . . You give them a piece of you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like maybe we should just be friends or how very perceptive turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

Neil Gaiman (1960 -)

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on admiration, ancestry, belief, challenge, church, cities, day, duty, faith, humility, kiss, posterity, praise, spirituality, tears, present, and time

Therefore, though we have rightly applauded our ancestors for their spiritual achievements (and do not and must not discount them now), those of us who prevail today will have done no small thing. The special spirits who have been reserved to live in this time of challenges and who overcome will one day be praised for their stamina by those who pulled handcarts. Those who were righteous in other ages, when the gospel light was snuffed out, will one day commend the current members of the Church who so live that the gospel light increased in its incandescence. Those of ancient Israel who saw many signs and yet episodically relapsed will one day praise those in this dispensation who have believed "because of the word" without being compelled to be humble. (Alma 32:14.) The Lamanites who were righteous in earlier times, especially, will praise their present posterity whose righteousness is bringing a blossoming of their seed. Thus the contemporary righteous will earn the esteem of their admired predecessors. Finally, if we are faithful, even the righteous of the city of Enoch will fall upon our necks and kiss us, and we will mingle our tears with their tears! (Moses 7:63.) Let us, therefore, notwithstanding our weaknesses, be reassured that the everyday keeping of the commandments and the doing of our duties is what it is all about.

A Quote by Mistinguette on kiss, questions, spelling, and women

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

The doctor must have put my pacemaker in wrong. Every time my husband kisses me, the garage door goes up.

A Quote by Marilyn Monroe on kiss and time


Joe: You don't want me, Sugar. I'm a liar and a phony. A saxophone player. One of those no-goodniks you keep running away from. Sugar: I know, every time. Joe: Sugar, do yourself a favor. Go back to where the millionaires are, the sweet end of the lollipop, not the cole slaw in the face, the old socks and the squeezed-out tube of toothpaste. Sugar: That's right. Pour it on. Talk me out of it. (She grabs him to kiss him.)

Marilyn Monroe (1926 - 1962)
