William Cowper

English poet
Visitors are insatiable devourers of time, and fit only for those who, if they did not visit, would do nothing.More William Cowper quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What peaceful hours I once enjoy'd!
How sweet their memory still!
But they have left an aching void
The world can never fill.More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A fretful temper will divide the closest knot that may be tied, by ceaseless sharp corrosion; a temper passionate and fierce may suddenly your joys disperse at one immense explosion.More William Cowper quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Words pregnant with celestial fire.More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Even in the stifling bosom of the town,
A garden, in which nothing thrives, has charms
That soothes the rich possessor; much consol'd,
That here and there some sprigs of mournful mint,
Or nightshade, or valerian, grace the well
He cultivates.More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
