Publisher's Description

Do you long for simpler days and the wisdom that guided them? Some Fruits of Solitude is a collection of William Penn's reflections on 165 subjects covering leadership, religion, discipline, relationships, and more, originally printed in 1693. Penn, a revolutionary leader and founder of Pennsylvania, was known for his faith, compassion, fairness, and equality to all. Contemplation on his proverbs and principles will deliver the serenity of a much less chaotic time to your life and family.

" and there should be a Time and Place for every thing: and whatever else is done or omitted, be sure to begin and end with God." From Discipline

"Between a Man and his Wife nothing out to rule but Love. Authority is for Children and Servants; yet not without Sweetness." From Avarice

This printing preserves the original style, character, and content of the 1901 vintage edition. It is a treasure that keeps our Christian heritage alive and unrevised for every family, leader, and library.

Author Info

William Penn (1644-1718) is best known as a bold and principled founder of the city of Philadelphia. Having experienced religious persecution because of his staunch Quaker beliefs, he diligently planned for a place where tolerance and civility would define the governance of the people. Given extensive lands in the New World by royal order, which encompassed the state of Pennsylvania, he worked hard to promote the principles of democracy. Many would serve as inspiration for the future Constitution of the United States of America. Though a brilliant scholar and generous man, Penn's refusal to allow Pennsylvania to be stripped of these values in order to sell it, meant he would eventually die penniless and was buried in an unmarked grave.
