Katie van Schaijik

I'm adding that first quote to my collection.  Thanks, Jules! The only thing I don't like about it is the emphasis on chance collisions—as if kisses happen accidentally. 

As to the second, it seems to me that the danger lies in the author's identifying that cramped view with morality.  In truth, it's not morality, but "morality", viz. conventionality substituting for true morality.

I do see in it a naive "live dangerously!" romanticism that could convince in the Victorian era, but not so much now.  Not post-sexual revolution, when we see the consequences all around us.
