Famous quotes containing the words cowper and/or lord:

    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)

    I have defeated them all.... I was left with some money to battle with the world when quite young, and at the present time have much to feel proud of.... The Lord gave me talent, and I know I have done good with it.... For my brains have made me quite independent and without the help of any man.
    Harriet A. Brown, U.S. inventor and educator. As quoted in Feminine Ingenuity, ch. 8, by Anne L. MacDonald (1992)
