Puritanism Quotations

Emma Goldman

Puritanism. The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.
H. L. Mencken

One of the strongest features of Puritanism is its autobiographical tendency, its passionate self-regard.

'Memorial Day' is about 'spring break' girls-gone-wild culture which is the seedy underbelly of our American Puritanism, the inverse side of the coin. It's also about how we forcefully exported that culture and then pretended to not know what we were doing.
Josh Fox

Prostitution, although hounded, imprisoned, and chained, is nevertheless the greatest triumph of Puritanism.
