  William Cowper Inspirational Quotes and Poems

Where men of judgement creep and feel their way, The positive pronounce without dismay.
-William Cowper (1731-1800)

He that attends to his interior self,
That has a heart, and keeps it; has a mind
That hungers, and supplies it; and who seeks
A social, not dissipated life,
Has business.
-William Cowper (1731-1800)

Dress drains our cellar dry
And keeps our larder lean: puts out our fires,
And introduces hunger, frost and woe,
Where peace and hospitality might reign.

Beware of desperate steps. The darkest day.
Live till tomorrow, will have pass’d away.

Exhilarate the spirit, and restore
The tone of languid nature.

Tis a truth well known to most
That whatsoever thing is lost;
We seek it, ere it come to light,
In every cranny but the right.

The path of sorrow, and that path alone,
Leads to the land where sorrow is unknown.
-William Cowper (1731-1800)

The kindest and the happiest pair
Will find occasion to forbear:
And something every day they live
To pity, and perhaps forgive.
-William Cowper (1731-1800)

Spring hangs her infant blossoms on the trees,
Rock’d in the cradle of the western breeze.
-William Cowper (1731-1800)

There is in souls a sympathy with sounds;
How soft the music of those village bells,
Falling at intervals upon the ear
In cadence sweet, now dying all away.
-William Cowper (1731-1800)
