„It's not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written.“

—  Judy Blume American children's writer 1938

As quoted in Literature for Today's Young Adults (1997) by Kenneth L. Donelson and Alleen Pace Nilsen, p. 392
Contexto: It's not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers.
