NUMBER:370
AUTHOR:Christopher Marlowe (1564–1593)
QUOTATION:Was this the face that launch’d a thousand ships,
And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?
Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss!
Her lips suck forth my soul: 1 see, where it flies!

Once he drew
With one long kiss my whole soul through
My lips.
