Who is charles horton cooley?

Famous quotes containing the words horton cooley, cooley and/or horton:

    The idealist’s programme of political or economic reform may be impracticable, absurd, demonstrably ridiculous; but it can never be successfully opposed merely by pointing out that this is the case. A negative opposition cannot be wholly effectual: there must be a competing idealism; something must be offered that is not only less objectionable but more desirable.
    —Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    If you call failures experiments, you can put them in your resume and claim them as achievements.
    —Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The self ... might be regarded as a sort of citadel of the mind, fortified without and containing selected treasures within, while love is an undivided share in the rest of the universe. In a healthy mind each contributes to the growth of the other: what we love intensely or for a long time we are likely to bring within the citadel, and to assert as part of ourself. On the other hand, it is only on the basis of a substantial self that a person is capable of progressive sympathy or love.
    —Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)
