Havelock Ellis

English physician, who stood at the origins of sociology as a scientific discipline.

Had there been a Lunatic Asylum in the suburbs of Jerusalem, Jesus Christ would infallibly have been shut up in it at the outset of his public career. That interview with Satan on a pinnacle of the Temple would alone have damned him, and everything that happened after could have confirmed the diagnosis. The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due to the absence from Jerusalem of a Lunatic Asylum.More Havelock Ellis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Courtship, properly understood, is the process whereby both the male and the female are brought into that state of sexual tumescence which is a more or less necessary condition for sexual intercourse. The play of courtship cannot, therefore, be considered to be definitely brought to an end by the ceremony of marriage; it may more properly be regarded as the natural preliminary to every act of coitus.More Havelock Ellis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A sublime faith in human imbecility has seldom led those who cherish it astray.More Havelock Ellis quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
