There is No such thing as a Moral or an Immoral book

“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without
being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in
beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are
the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such
thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly
written.
That is all.”


Oscar Wilde,
