Famous quotes containing the word cowper:

    I am monarch of all I survey;
    My right there is none to dispute;
    From the center all round to the sea
    I am lord of the fowl and the brute.
    O Solitude! where are the charms
    That sages have seen in thy face?
    Better dwell in the midst of alarms,
    Than reign in this horrible place.
    —William Cowper (1731–1800)

    A calm and heav’nly frame;
    A light to shine upon the road
    That leads me to the Lamb!
