More From Charles Horton Cooley
- "So far as discipline is concerned, freedom means not its absence but the use of higher and more rational forms as contrasted with those that are lower or less rational."
- "The imaginations which people have of one another are the solid facts of society."
- "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."
More In Imagination
- "By going over your day in imagination before you begin it, you can begin acting successfully at any moment."― Dorthea Brande
- "It’s a great excuse and luxury, having a job and blaming it for your inability to do your own art. When you don’t have to work, you are left with the horror of facing your own lack of imagination and your own emptiness. A devastating possibility when finally time is your own."― Julian Schnabel
- "Nowadays people’s visual imagination is so much more sophisticated, so much more developed, particularly in young people, that now you can make an image which just slightly suggests something, they can make of it what they will."― Robert Doisneau
