Shakespeare, King Henry VIII on Hand Kissing

 “The fairest hand I ever touched!
O beauty, till now I never knew thee.”
(KHVIII act 1, sc. 4)

Tips for use. Follow up after kissing the hand of a particularly beautiful lady. Ovid offers some advise to her if her hands are not perfect. ‘Let her whose fingers are fat, or nails rough, mark what she says with but little gesture’ (Art Of Love, book 3)
