Famous quotes containing the words havelock ellis and/or ellis:

    Einstein is not ... merely an artist in his moments of leisure and play, as a great statesman may play golf or a great soldier grow orchids. He retains the same attitude in the whole of his work. He traces science to its roots in emotion, which is exactly where art is also rooted.
    Havelock Ellis (1859–1939)

    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)
