William Cowper Quotes 1-9 out of 9
   
He is the freeman whom the truth makes free, And all are slaves besides.
Freedom has a thousand charms to show, That slaves, howe'er contented, never know.
No, Freedom has a thousand charms to show That slaves, howe'er contented, never know.
He is the freeman whom the truth makes free.
'Tis liberty alone that gives the flower Of fleeting life its lustre and perfume; And we are weeds without it.
To follow foolish precedents, and wink With both our eyes, is easier than to think.
Then liberty, like day, Breaks on the soul, and by a flash from Heaven Fires all the faculties with glorious joy.
But slaves that once conceive the glowing thought Of freedom, in that hope itself possess All that the contest calls for; spirit, strength, The scorn of danger, and united hearts, The surest presage of the good they seek.
Absence of occupation is not rest, A mind quite vacant is a mind distress'd.
