“I am not what I think I am, and I am not what you think I am. I am what I think you think I am.”
Charles Horton Cooley
“An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one.”
Charles Horton Cooley
“To get away from one's working environment is; in a sense, to get away from one's self; and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change.”
Charles Horton Cooley, Social organization; a study of the larger mind
“Every lover of books has authors whom he reads over and over again, whom he cares for as persons and not as sources of information, who are more to him, possibly, than any person he sees. He continually returns to the cherished companion and feeds eagerly upon his thought. It is because there is something in the book which he needs, which awakens and directs trains of thought that lead him where he likes to be led.”
Charles Horton Cooley, Human Nature and the Social Order
“To many people it would seem mystical to say the persons, as we know them, are not separable and mutually exclusive, like physical bodies, so that what is part of one cannot be part of another, but that they interpenetrate one another, the same element pertaining to different persons at different times, or even at the same time: yet this is a verifiable and not very abstruse fact.”
Charles Horton Cooley, Human Nature and the Social Order
“Virtue is a system and men do heroic acts as part of the day's work and without self-consciousness.”
Charles H. Cooley, Social Organization by Charles H. Cooley
“The unhappiness of men, maintained by Socrates, depends upon their badness being brought home to them in conscience. If, because of their insensibility or lack of proper reproof, the error of their way is not impressed upon them, they have no motive to reform. The fact that the evil-doer has become such gradually, and does not realize the evil in him, is no reason why we should not blame him; it is the function of blame to make him and others realize it, to define evil-doer when he is dead, or has sincerely and openly repented, not while he remains a force for wrong.”
Charles H. Cooley, Social Organization by Charles H. Cooley
