  • The Kiss and its History/Chapter 8 - Wikisource, the free online library
    passing mention on my part Certain races of mankind now actually salute each other by smelling they apply their mouth and nose to a person s cheek and draw a long breath In their language they do not say Give me a kiss but Smell me The same sort of kiss is also met with among the Burmese and with many Malay tribes the words smell and salute are synonymous Other races do not confine themselves to smelling each other s faces but sniff their hands at every salutation Alfred Grandidier a French traveller says of the nose kiss in Madagascar It always excites the merriment of Europeans and yet it has its origin in an extremely refined idea The invisible air which is continually being breathed through the lips is to savages not only as with us a sign of life but it is also an emanation of the soul its perfume as they themselves say and when they mingle and suck in each other s breath and odour they think they are actually mingling their souls 2 Then the origin of the nose kiss it seems undoubtedly ought to be sought at any rate partly in the sense of smell The love of another human being involves as a consequence one s loving everything belonging to this other being and this love is shown in casu by drinking in his or her breath whereby little by little a peculiar nose salutation is very ingeniously developed which naturally is capable of gradually assuming various conventional forms Now we will proceed to the kiss proper that on the mouth How can its origin be explained 3 It does not seem very rational to assume that the motion of the muscles in breathing should of itself be the natural purely physical reflex of a feeling of love in the same way as for instance certain half spasmodic contractions of several muscles in the upper part of the face can be the immediate expression of wrath I do not believe either that the mere contact of the lips with another person s face was originally sufficient to express I love you Naturally the longing to touch the beloved one s body to approach it as closely as possible is a very essential manifestation of erotic emotion but so far as the contact of the lips is concerned there is reason for assuming that originally without its being the direct object it had been moreover and perhaps in an equally high degree a means of attaining a definite sensual gratification a gratification that can be realised by the co operation of the lips and mouth As the nose salutation partly originates in smell so the mouth salutation may to a certain extent 4 at least have its origin in taste or which is even more probable in both smell and taste These latter as you know are very closely related to each other The dog shows his joy at his master s presence

    distinguished from such as I have borrowed from standard versions by the appended initials W F H Inner Temple London 2 nd August 1901 AUTHOR S PREFACE Wenn ich nur selber wüsste Was mir in die Seele zischt Die Worte und die Küsse Sind wunderbar vermischt Oh could I but decipher What tis that fills my mind The words are with the kisses So wond rously combined Heine Dante in the fifth canto of his Hell has celebrated the power a kiss may have over human beings In the course of his wanderings in the nether world when he has reached the spot where abide those who have sinned through love he sees two souls that flutter so lightly in the wind These are Francesco da Rimini and her brother in law Paolo He asks Francesco to tell him In the time of your sweet sighs By what and how love granted that ye knew Your yet uncertain wishes Whereto she replies One day For our delight we read of Lancelot How him love thrall d Alone we were and no Suspicion near us Ofttimes by that reading Our eyes were drawn together and the hue Fled from our alter d cheek But at one point Alone we fell When of that smile we read The wished smile so rapturously kissed By one so deep in love then he who ne er From me shall separate at once my lips All trembling kiss d The book and writer both Were love s purveyors In its leaves that day We read no more 1 I have had a special object in prefacing my studies on the history of kissing with these famous verses for I regarded it in the light of a duty to caution my readers emphatically and at the
