Quote of William Cowper


The Task
Book II, The Timepiece
There is a pleasure in poetic pains
Which only poets know. 

Variety's the very spice of life,
That gives it all its flavor.


A fool must now and then be right, by chance.

Supposed to be Written by Alexander Selkirk.

How fleet is a glance of the mind! 
Compared with the speed of its flight, 
The tempest itself lags behind, 
And the swift-winged arrows of light.
