Famous quotes containing the words powys, john and/or cowper:

    Of the three forms of pride, that is to say pride proper, vanity, and conceit, vanity is by far the most harmless, and conceit by far the most dangerous. The meaning of vanity is to think too much of our bodily advantages, whether real or unreal, over others; while the meaning of conceit is to believe we are cleverer, wiser, grander, and more important than we really are.
    —John Cowper Powys (1872–1963)

    This is my commandment, that ye love one another.
    Bible: New Testament Jesus, in John 15:12.

    O, popular applause! what heart of man
    Is proof against thy sweet, seducing charms?
    —William Cowper (1731–1800)
