Censorship quotes

Marilyn Monroe
The trouble with censors is that they worry if a girl has cleavage. They ought to worry if she hasn't any.

David Mamet
We live in oppressive times. We have, as a nation, become our own thought police but instead of calling the process by which we limit our expression of dissent and wonder censorship, we call it concern for commercial viability.

Henry Steele Commager

Alfred Whitney Griswold
Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only weapon against bad ideas is better ideas.

Seigneur De Saint-Evremond
The censure of those who are opposed to us, is the highest commendation that can be given us.

Gen William C. Westmoreland
Vietnam was the first war ever fought without any censorship. Without censorship, things can get terribly confused in the public mind.

Samuel Johnson
No member of society has the right to teach any doctrine contrary to what society holds to be true.

Harry Belafonte
You can cage the singer but not the song.
