A Little Tart...
"Touch has a memory." - John Keats
"See how she leans her cheek upon her hand. O, that I were a glove upon that hand That I might touch that cheek!" - William Shakespeare
"Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone's hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours." - Vera Nazarian
"It is touch that is the deadliest enemy of chastity, loyalty, monogamy, gentility with its codes and conventions and restraints. By touch we are betrayed and betray others - an accidental brushing of shoulders or touching of hands...hands laid on shoulders in a gesture of comfort that lies like a thief, that takes, not gives, that wants, not offers, that awakes, not pacifies. When one flesh is waiting, there is electricity in the merest contact." - Wallace Stegner
"Your hand touching mine. This is how galaxies collide." - Sanober Khan
