American writer, historian
God has given the salt lick to the deer; and He has given to man, red-skin and white, the delicious spring at which to slake his thirst.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Apathy is the great requisite for the station; for woe betide the wretch who fancies any modicum of zeal.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How easy it is for generous sentiments, high courtesy, and chivalrous courage to lose their influence beneath the chilling blight of selfishness, and to exhibit to the world a man who was great in all the minor attributes of character, but who was found wanting when it became necessary to prove how much principle is superior to policy.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The press, like fire, is an excellent servant, but a terrible master.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]
