Celibacy Quotations

The vow of celibacy is a matter of keeping one's word to Christ and the Church. a duty and a proof of the priest's inner maturity; it is the expression of his personal dignity.
Pope John Paul II

As to marriage or celibacy, let a man take which course he will, he will be sure to repent.
Socrates

The other thing that's totally neglected and which nobody approves of is celibacy. People again assume that you're just repressing something.
Edmund White

Robert Rainy

Celibacy is not just a matter of not having sex. It is a way of admiring a person for their humanity, maybe even for their beauty.
