"Never ever underestimate the importance of a kiss. A kiss is much, much more than an act of cordial friendship, pleasurable re-union, sexual desire or eternal gratitude.
A kiss is the symbol of one's most endearing vulnerability. It is given in good faith that it will be accepted in the spirit of its true intention, for its refusal can be most hurtful.
I have during the course of my life met too many people who sadly lossed their partner without ever having had the opportunity to say a loving goodbye. Never let your loved one leave the house in the rush of daily life without giving them their daily kiss, for should accident or any other fatal incident prevent them from ever returning to you, the knowledge that when you last interacted with them your parting kiss sealed their departure will remain a lifelong support in the fondest of memory."
