Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
I love the sex, and sometimes would reverse
  The tyrant’s wish, “That mankind only had
One neck, which he with one fell stroke might pierce;”
  My wish is quite as wide, but not so bad,
And much more tender on the whole than fierce;
  It being (not now, but only while a lad)
That womankind had but one rosy mouth,
To kiss them all at once from north to south.
        Byron.—Don Juan, Canto VI. Stanza 27.
