    Every general increase of freedom is accompanied by some degeneracy, attributable to the same causes as the freedom.

    Institutions—government, churches, industries, and the like—have properly no other function than to contribute to human freedom; and in so far as they fail, on the whole, to perform this function, they are wrong and need reconstruction.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    If love closes, the self contracts and hardens: the mind having nothing else to occupy its attention and give it that change and renewal it requires, busies itself more and more with self-feeling, which takes on narrow and disgusting forms, like avarice, arrogance and fatuity.
    —Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    The aftermath of joy is not usually more joy.
    —Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    In most cases a favorite writer is more with us in his book than he ever could have been in the flesh; since, being a writer, he is one who has studied and perfected this particular mode of personal incarnation, very likely to the detriment of any other. I should like as a matter of curiosity to see and hear for a moment the men whose works I admire; but I should hardly expect to find further intercourse particularly profitable.
    —Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)
