Leben mit Herman Melville

Kissing is a thing a man needs two hands for, and a woman six lips.

Update for Caroline and Her Young Sailor Bold
and of course Brush your teeth for America!:

Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another.

July 6 is World Kissing Day.

Daida, De vuelta, 22. April 2010

I cannot demonstrate it, but it seems to me, that in the whale the sense of touch is concentrated in the tail; for in this respect there is a delicacy in it only equalled by the daintiness of the elephant’s trunk. This delicacy is chiefly evinced in the action of sweeping, when in maidenly gentleness the whale with a certain soft slowness moves his immense flukes from side to side upon the surface of the sea; and if he feel but a sailor’s whisker, woe to that sailor, whiskers and all. What tenderness there is in that preliminary touch! Had this tail any prehensile power, I should straightway bethink me of Darmonodes’ elephant that so frequented the flower-market, and with low salutations presented nosegays to damsels, and then caressed their zones.
