A Quote for Banned Book Week

Censors Tend to Do What Only Psychotics Do: They Confuse Reality With Illusion.
- David Cronenberg (Canadian Screenwriter & Director)


  1. Thats a great quote!
    Enjoy your weekend :)

  2. I love this. If I read a book about a cowboy or a doctor or a murderer, it doesn't mean I am going to become any of those things...sigh.

  3. Good quote. I read a lot of science fiction when I was a teenager. I was oblivious to my mother's concern, but at one point she finally approached me and hesitatingly asked, "You do know those aren't real, don't you?" All that time she had been worried that I couldn't tell reality from fantasy just because of what I was reading.

  4. Great quote, nice to see Cronenberg used to say wise things, because the recent stuff he says is - how do I say it politely - not wise at all :)
