    William Cowper Quotes

    English poet & translator

    Quotes by William Cowper

    • Glory built on selfish principles is shame and guilt.
    • The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.
    • O Winter! ruler of the inverted year, . . . I crown thee king of intimate delights, Fireside enjoyments, home-born happiness, And all the comforts that the lowly roof Of undisturb'd Retirement, and the hours Of long uninterrupted evening, know.
      Task (bk. IV, l. 120)
