William Cowper

William Cowper

English poet
Ceremony leads her bigots forth, prepared to fight for shadows of no worth. While truths, on which eternal things depend, can hardly find a single friend.More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The things that mount the rostrum with a skip, And then skip down again, pronounce a text, Cry hem; and reading what they never wrote Just fifteen minutes, huddle up their work, And with a well-bred whisper close the scene!More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Oh to have a lodge in some vast wilderness. Where rumors of oppression and deceit, of unsuccessful and successful wars may never reach me anymore.More William Cowper quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Words learn'd by rote a parrot may rehearse,
But talking is not always to converse,
Not more distinct from harmony divine
The constant creaking of a country sign.More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When his wife asked him to change clothes to meet the German
Ambassador: "If they want to see me, here I am. If they want to
see my clothes, open my closet and show them my suits."More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
