“The masters of all the more intensely emotional arts have frequently cultivated a high degree of chastity. This is notably the case as regards music. One thinks of Mozart, of Beethoven, of Shubert. At the age of twenty-five, when he had already produced much fine work, Mozart wrote in a letter that he had never touched a woman.”
–Henry Havelock Ellis (1859-1939)—English physician famous for his extensive case histories (10,000 men and women), medical research and anthropological reports. His interests in human biology and his personal experience led Havelock Ellis to write his six-volume Studies in the Psychology of Sex.
