Capon: Only One

“We don’t talk much any more about lust as a disease. We don’t see ourselves as imperiled by fornication; instead we name it Sex and praise it to the skies; but a disease it is nonetheless, and marrying remains its cure. Sex teaches me to desire all women above a very low passing grade. Marriage gives me only one.”

– Robert Farrar Capon, Bed and Board (p. 75)
