A Quote by William Cowper on happiness, insight, grace, and recognition

He who finds thought that lets us penetrate even a little deeper into the eternal mystery of nature has been granted great grace. He who, in addition, experiences the recognition, sympathy, and help of the best minds of his times, had been given almost more happiness than one man can bear.

William Cowper (1731 - 1800)
