American writer, historian
Whenever the government of the United States shall break up, it will probably be in consequence of a false direction having been given to public opinion. More James Cooper quotes [10/04/2011 11:10:49]
Aristocracy: A combination of many powerful men, for the purpose of maintaining their own particular interests. It is consequently a concentration of all the most effective parts of a community for a given end, hence its energy, efficiency and success.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In America the taint of sectarianism lies broad upon the land. Not content with acknowledging the supremacy as the Diety, and with erecting temples in his honor, where all can bow down with reverence, the pride and vanity of human reason enter into and pollute our worship, and the houses that should be of God and for God, alone, where he is to be honored with submissive faith, are too often merely schools of metaphysical and useless distinctions. The nation is sectarian, rather than Christian.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Battles, unlike bargains, are rarely discussed in society.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In America, it is indispensable that every well wisher of true liberty should understand that acts of tyranny can only proceed from the publick. The publick, then, is to be watched, in this country, as, in other countries kings and aristocrats are to be watched.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
