Famous quotes containing the words cowper and/or earl:

    Oh! for a closer walk with God,
    A calm and heav’nly frame;
    A light to shine upon the road
    That leads me to the Lamb!
    —William Cowper (1731–1800)

    Young men are as apt to think themselves wise enough, as drunken men are to think themselves sober enough. They look upon spirit to be a much better thing than experience, which they call coldness. They are but half mistaken; for though spirit without experience is dangerous, experience without spirit is languid and defective.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
