  • Those, shocked by today’s pornography, fear the same moral disaster as those that once were shocked by “a glimpse of stocking”.


  • Each age is but one link in the chain that connects the past with the future; but it is the delusion of each age that it is not just a link, but the anchor for both the past and the future.

  • “Art” is whatever a group of art authorities claim it to be. Do you then suppose that an elephant is only what a group of zoologists claim it to be?
