The modern novel has been many things, and functioned at many levels. It would keep D.H. Lawrence poor, and make Jilly Cooper and Jeffrey Archer rich.Malcolm Stanley Bradbury: 1993 The Modern British Novel, preface.
It comes as a great shock around the age of five, six or seven to discover that the flag to which you have pledged yourallegiance, along with everybodyelse, has not pledged its allegiance to you. It comes as a shock to see Gary Cooper killing off the Indians and, although you are rooting for Gary Cooper, that the Indians are you.James Arthur Baldwin: 1965 Speech at Cambridge Union,17 Feb, arguing for the motion that 'The American Dream is at the expense of the American Negro'.
“One of the laws of nature,” Gordon said, “is that half the people have got to be below average.””For a Gaussian distribution, yeah,” Cooper said. “Sad, though.”gregory benford: Chapter 17 (p. 234)
From the moment I leave my house or my hotel room, the public owns me. The public made Alice Cooper and I can't imagine ever turning my back on my fans.alice cooper: As quoted in Philadelphia Daily News (3 March 2006)
It's so funny that people think I actually ran for President. I am maybe the most un-political person you're ever going to meet. When I put "Elected" out, it was definitely a satire ... "Alice Cooper for President" ... when everybody realized I was running against Nixon, you known, even on a joke level, I think I got a lot of write-in votes.alice cooper: Kingsnake podcast interview (26 May 2006)
I've been rather warming to Yvette Cooper over the last year or two. She was one of those new Labour women whom Tories loved to hate at first. I found her pretty irritating. There was something slightly cold and zombie-like in which she used the apparatchik-speak language of New Labour politics and never really seemed to engage with people. She seemed too much like an operative and not enough like a minister. But I've noticed her changing. She's relaxed. She's got funnier.yvette cooper: Matthew Parris, a former Conservative MP and current newspaper columnist on Cooper, October, 2010.
Gary [Cooper] turned out to be the surprise of my young life. He was so convincing with his stuttering, stammering awkward little boy manners. When the action called for Dr. Wassell to kiss me, I got all set for a bashful boy kiss. Well, it was like holding a hand grenade and not being able to get rid of it! I was left breathless.laraine day: The Independent, Obituaries, Laraine Day, November 13, 2007
'Don't just do something, stand there.' Gary Cooper wasn't afraid to do nothing.clint eastwood: In the first part, Eastwood was reportedly quoting a favored instruction from acting coach Jack Kosslyn.
Stewart uses his vast experience and established screen image as the all-American hero to an advantage in a role, which was made to order as he reached the later phases of his glorious career.:; Beginning with his protag's name, Charlie is a classic American hero, played by Cooper , Stewart , and even Bogart , a man initially cherishing isolation and lack of involvement only to be forced into a divisive conflict through circumstances, both personal and political .Emanuel Levy, "Shenandoah (1965)" (14 June 2007)
I have no desire whatever to reform myself. My only desire is to reform other people who try to reform me. and I believe that the only way to reform people is to kill em. My motto is, Rob em all, Rape em all and Kill em all.

The proud spirit of the original owners of these vast prairies inherited through centuries of fierce and bloody wars for their possession, lingered last in the bosom of Sitting Bull. With his fall the nobility of the Redskin is extinguished, and what few are left are a pack of whining curs who lick the hand that smites them. The Whites, by law of conquest, by justice of civilization, are masters of the American continent, and the best safety of the frontier settlements will be secured by the total annihilation of the few remaining Indians. Why not annihilation? Their glory has fled, their spirit broken, their manhood effaced; better that they die than live the miserable wretches that they are. History would forget these latter despicable beings, and speak, in later ages of the glory of these grand Kings of forest and plain that Cooper loved to heroism. We cannot honestly regret their extermination, but we at least do justice to the manly characteristics possessed, according to their lights and education, by the early Redskins of America.l. frank baum: Saturday Pioneer (20 December 1890)
“Don’t press her,” said Cooper. “If someone decides to leave something unsaid, my experience is that everyone is happier if they don’t insist on his saying it.”orson scott card: Chapter 5 (Heartfire (1998))
“This is Alvin Smith,” said Cooper. “He’s a man of inestimable abilities, but only because nobody has cared enough to estimate them.”orson scott card: Chapter 5 (Heartfire (1998))
“You,” said Purity, “have been long enough out of England to pick up some American brag.” “But surrounded by Americans as I am,” said Cooper, “my brag is like a farthing in a sack of guineas.”orson scott card: Chapter 5 (Heartfire (1998))
By the time Verily was sixteen, a sturdy and rather good-looking young man of some education and impeccable manners, he had become a thoroughgoing skeptic. If the dogmas about witchery could be so hopelessly wrong, how could any of the teachings of the ministers be relied upon? It left Verily Cooper at loose ends, intellectually speaking, for all his teachers spoke as if religion were the cornerstone of all other learning, and yet all of Verily’s actual studies led him to the conclusion that sciences founded upon religion were uncertain at best, utterly bogus at worst.orson scott card: Chapter 9 (Alvin Journeyman (1995))
About the only power you have is the power to discriminate. Living in a culture like this, you have to make choices and search out what has the most authentic content or substance. In the 1960s, while on LSD, I realized that my mind was a garbage receptacle of mass media images and input. I spent my whole childhood absorbing so much crap that my personality and mind are saturated with it. God only knows if that affects you physically! As a kid I became increasingly interested in earlier periods of culture. I turned into a little nostalgia boy, and I became steeped in the Our Gang fantasy from watching them on TV. So much so, that my speech patterns were affected. The style of those Our Gang comedies was so charming that I started acting and talking like Jackie Cooper and Alfalfa. They had these cute kids, artificial mannerisms. It must have been embarrassing for people to hear me talk like that.robert crumb: The R. Crumb Handbook by Robert Crumb and Peter Poplaski (2005), p. 60
Let me then ask your next question: Well, why is this a leak investigation that doesn't result in a charge? I've been trying to think about how to explain this, so let me try. I know baseball analogies are the fad these days. Let me try something. If you saw a baseball game and you saw a pitcher wind up and throw a fastball and hit a batter right smack in the head, and it really, really hurt them, you'd want to know why the pitcher did that. And you'd wonder whether or not the person just reared back and decided, "I've got bad blood with this batter. He hit two home runs off me. I'm just going to hit him in the head as hard as I can." You also might wonder whether or not the pitcher just let go of the ball or his foot slipped, and he had no idea to throw the ball anywhere near the batter's head. And there's lots of shades of gray in between. You might learn that you wanted to hit the batter in the back and it hit him in the head because he moved. You might want to throw it under his chin, but it ended up hitting him on the head. And what you'd want to do is have as much information as you could. You'd want to know: What happened in the dugout? Was this guy complaining about the person he threw at? Did he talk to anyone else? What was he thinking? How does he react? All those things you'd want to know. And then you'd make a decision as to whether this person should be banned from baseball, whether they should be suspended, whether you should do nothing at all and just say, "Hey, the person threw a bad pitch. Get over it." In this case, it's a lot more serious than baseball. And the damage wasn't to one person. It wasn't just Valerie Wilson. It was done to all of us. And as you sit back, you want to learn: Why was this information going out? Why were people taking this information about Valerie Wilson and giving it to reporters? Why did Mr. Libby say what he did? Why did he tell Judith Miller three times? Why did he tell the press secretary on Monday? Why did he tell Mr. Cooper? And was this something where he intended to cause whatever damage was caused? Or did they intend to do something else and where are the shades of gray? And what we have when someone charges obstruction of justice, the umpire gets sand thrown in his eyes. He's trying to figure what happened and somebody blocked their view.patrick fitzgerald: Fitzgerald News Conference from the Washington Post (October 28, 2005)
"Tiny Cooper is not the world's gayest person, and he is not the world's largest person, but I believe he may be the world's largest person who is really, really gay, and also the world's gayest person who is really, really large."john green: Will Grayson, p. 3
The priests of the different religious sects, who dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of day-light; and scowl on it the fatal harbinger announcing the subversion of the duperies on which they live. In this the Presbyterian clergy take the lead. the tocsin is sounded in all their pulpits, and the first alarm denounced is against the particular creed of Doctr. Cooper; and as impudently denounced as if they really knew what it is.thomas jefferson: Letter to José Correia da Serra (11 April 1820).
Moviegoers like to believe that those they have made stars are great actors. People used to say that Gary Cooper was a fine actor probably because when they looked in his face they were ready to give him their power of attorney.Pauline Kael: "Potency," review of Born on the Fourth of July (1990-01-22), p. 254
Some successful management is based largely upon a technical knowledge of the business or enterprise. In this way, administration and guidance is given to workers attempting to follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before. However, management also formulates plans and adopts strategies for carrying out the work or running the business. These plans include a broad, overall look at the group enterprise, particularly in its relation to concurrent and competing activities. Management, in addition, is concerned with communications among those engaged in the work of the enterprise. Relations between people is one of the most important factors in the management problem... Management science is generally the work of scientists and scientifically oriented people in the field of management. Scientific management, on the other hand, is the practice of management conducted in an orderly fashion. Although the new management science will be developed largely by scientists, we believe that this development cannot take place without the help and guidance of management practitioners. William Cooper, first president of TIMS, hopes that the Institute will provide a fertile meeting-ground for the practicing manager in business and government and the research scientist.Management science Vol. 3 (1957), p. 120 ; Article about The Institute of Management Sciences (TIMS) mission.
