"The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial one in any love story."
Do you agree with these words by Emil Ludwig? Do you remember your first kiss
? Or the first time you kissed your girlfriend or husband? Maybe for some of you, there was a "first kiss" on Valentine's Day
. If so, good for you! It's a memorable start to any relationship, and sometimes, serves as a heartbreaking end
. Kissing quotes

Multitalented actor, director and screenwriter Sacha Guitry
in one of his kissing quotes
suggests that, "I am in favor of preserving the French habit of kissing ladies' hands - after all, one must start somewhere."
I wonder if you have to visit France to get this treatment, since it seems like we only see this kind of behavior in the movies or on television anymore. And I don't think it's related to a fear of germs.

Stop! I know what you're thinking, and this is a PG website. But even Shakespeare
used his talents in iambic pentameter to suggest that, "Were kisses all the joys in bed, One woman would another wed."
