Obscenity, which is ever blasphemy against the divine beauty in life, . . . is a monster for which the corruption of society forever brings forth new food, which it devours in secret

-Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822), English poet. A Defence of Poetry (written 1821; published 1840).

Obscenity is a cleansing process, whereas pornography only adds to the murk
-Henry Miller (1891-1980), U.S. author. Writers at Work, (Second Series, ed. by George Plimpton, 1963). Miller is quoted as saying, "I am for obscenity and against pornography."

-Iris Murdoch (b. 1919), British novelist, philosopher. Alfred Ludens, in The Message to the Planet, pt. 1 (1989).

-Louisa May Alcott (1832-88), U.S. author. Amy March, in Little Women, pt. 2, ch. 16 (1869).
