Harry Mazer
“I struggle each day not to let the fear of the censor poison my writing. Where the censor rules, a dull sameness creeps into books.”
Harry Mazer, Places I Never Meant To Be: Original Stories by Censored Writers

Norma Fox Mazer
“That's all we writers have, anyway; our minds and imaginations. To allow censors even the tiniest space in there with us can only lead to dullness, imitation, and mediocrity.”
Norma Fox Mazer, Places I Never Meant To Be: Original Stories by Censored Writers

“Parents and other who complain often do so out of deep beliefs or convictions, and often in an effort to "protect" young people from influences they believe are harmful. Of course, no one wants to subject students to harmful influences. But given the wide range of opinion, if everyone had the right to veto what he or she didn't like, nothing much would be left.”
Joan Bertin, Places I Never Meant To Be: Original Stories by Censored Writers

Michelle Obama
“His money went largely toward books, which to him were like sacred objects, providing ballast for his mind.”
Michelle Obama, Becoming

Julius Lester
“Perhaps nothing is so wounding to a writer than being accused of having written something that hurts a child. Censorship is an attitude of mistrust and suspicion that seeks to deprive the human experience of mystery and complexity. But without mystery and complexity there is no wonder; there is no awe; there is no laughter.”
Julius Lester, Places I Never Meant To Be: Original Stories by Censored Writers
