“In a pure society, the subject of marriage would not be so often avoided,from shame and not from reverence, winked out of sight, and hinted at only; but treated naturally and simply,perhaps simply avoided like the kindred mysteries. If it cannot be spoken of for shame, how can it be acted of? But, doubtless, there is far more purity, as well as more impurity, than is apparent.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
