Quote from Herman Melville,

"If some books are deemed most baneful and their sale forbid,
how, then, with deadlier facts, not dreams of doting men?
Those whom books will hurt will not be proof against events.
Events, not books should be forbid."


Herman Melville (more quotes by Herman Melville or books by/about Herman Melville)
