Famous quotes containing the word ellis:

    It has always been difficult for Man to realise that his life is all an art. It has been more difficult to conceive it so than to act it so. For that is always how he has more or less acted it.
    —Havelock Ellis (1859–1939)

    It is curious how there seems to be an instinctive disgust in Man for his nearest ancestors and relations. If only Darwin could conscientiously have traced man back to the Elephant or the Lion or the Antelope, how much ridicule and prejudice would have been spared to the doctrine of Evolution.
    —Havelock Ellis (1859–1939)

    We cannot be sure that we ought not to regard the most criminal country as that which in some aspects possesses the highest civilisation.
    —Havelock Ellis (1859–1939)
