Taboo Quotes

I think the greatest taboos in America are faith and failure. Michael Malone

Isn’t privacy about keeping taboos in their place? Kate Millet

Whenever a taboo is broken, something good happens, something vitalizing…Taboos after all are only hangovers, the product of diseased minds, you might say, of fearsome people who hadn’t the courage to live and who under the guise of morality and religion have imposed these things upon us. Henry Miller

The type of fig leaf which each culture employs to cover its social taboos offers a twofold description of its morality. It reveals that certain unacknowledged behavior exists and it suggests the form that such behavior takes. Freda Adler
