Obscenity

Here is the piece. If you can't say fornicate can you say copulate or if not that can you say co-habit? If not that would have to say consummate I suppose. Use your own good taste and judgment.

Ernest Hemingway (1898-1961) American Writer.

Since obscenity is the truth of our passion today, it is the only stuff of art -- or almost the only stuff.

D. H. Lawrence (1885-1930) English writer.

Obscenity is a cleansing process, whereas pornography only adds to the murk.

Henry Miller (1891-1980) American author.

Not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, does the enlightened man dislike to wade into its waters.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) German-Swiss philosopher and writer.

Obscenity is whatever happens to shock some elderly and ignorant magistrate.

Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) British logician and philosopher.

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.

The sign of a Philistine age is the cry of immorality against art.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and dramatist.
