    It is surely a matter of common observation that a man who knows no one thing intimately has no views worth hearing on things in general. The farmer philosophizes in terms of crops, soils, markets, and implements, the mechanic generalizes his experiences of wood and iron, the seaman reaches similar conclusions by his own special road; and if the scholar keeps pace with these it must be by an equally virile productivity.
    —Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    To get away from one’s working environment is, in a sense, to get away from one’s self; and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    A man may lack everything but tact and conviction and still be a forcible speaker; but without these nothing will avail.... Fluency, grace, logical order, and the like, are merely the decorative surface of oratory.
    —Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    Readers transform a library from a mausoleum into many theaters.
    —Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
