Abraham Cowley was an English poet born in the City of London late in 1618. He was one of the leading English poets of the 17th century, with 14 printings of his Works published between 1668 and 1721.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in
overalls and looks like work.
Gold begets in brethren hate;
Gold in families debate;
Gold does friendship separate;
Gold does civil wars create.
Vain, weak-built isthmus, which dost proudly rise
Up between two eternities!
