Цитаты Купер, Уильям

„Silently as a dream the fabric rose —
No sound of hammer or of saw was there.“

—  William Cowper, The Task

„Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much;
Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.“

Контексте: Knowledge, a rude unprofitable mass,
The mere materials with which wisdom builds,
Till smoothed and squared and fitted to its place,
Does but encumber whom it seems to enrich.
Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much;
Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.
Books are not seldom talismans and spells.

Where his eagles never flew,
None invincible as they."Such the bard's prophetic words, Pregnant with celestial fire, Bending as he swept the chords Of his sweet but awful lyre.

A wish or a thought after me?
