"The book which most deserved to be banned would be a catalogue of banned books" (G 37 in R. J. Hollingdale's translation and numeration) is an aphorism by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg.

In original German it reads "Das Buch, das in der Welt am ersten verboten zu werden verdiente, wäre ein Catalogus von verbotenen Büchern."
