William Cowper

William Cowper

English poet
Existence is a strange bargain. Life owes us little; we owe it everything. The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Is base in kind, and born to be a slave.More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Remorse, the fatal egg that pleasure laid.More William Cowper quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sacred interpreter of human thought,
How few respect or use thee as they ought!
But all shall give account of every wrong,
Who dare dishonor or defile the tongue;
Who prostitute it in the cause of vice,
Or sell their glory at a market-price!More William Cowper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
