  Her kisses were like tire explosions.
  Kissing … is as a prologue to a play.
            —Henry Fielding
The kisses of thy deathless lips,
Like strange star-pulses, throbbed through space.
            —Paul Hamilton Hayne
  Kiss as close as a scallop.
            —Ben Jonson
Came kissing like rich airs from secret shores
To those who sail into the eternal dawn.
            —Gerald Massey
  Kisses as unctuous as oil.
            —Francis S. Saltus
  Kisses like sweet, sad, subtle scents of myrrh.
            —Francis S. Saltus
  Kisses are like grains of gold or silver found upon the ground, of no value themselves, but precious as showing that a mine is near.
            —George Villiers
