American writer, historian
The common faults of American language are an ambition of effect, a want of simplicity, and a turgid abuse of terms.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the fate of all things to ripen, and then to decay.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is a governing principle of nature, that the agency which can produce most good, when perverted from its proper aim, is most productive of evil. It behooves the well-intentioned, therefore, vigorously to watch the tendency of even their most highly prized institutions, since that which was established in the interests of the right, may so easily become the agent of the wrong.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Equality, in a social sense, may be divided into that of condition, and that of rights. Equality of condition is incompatible with civilization, and is found only to exist in those communities that are but slightly removed from the savage state. In practice, it can only mean a common misery.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We live in a world of transgressions and selfishness, and no pictures that represent us otherwise can be true; though happily for human nature, gleamings of that pure spirit in whose likeness man has been fashioned, are to be seen, relieving its deformities, and mitigating, if not excusing its crimes.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
