Item Description...
" I can hardly wish you anything better than seriously considering what you do with your time. Using time well is the greatest wisdom and work of life." William Penn As a Quaker preacher, minister, and missionary in the late seventeenth century, William Penn was imprisoned for his faith many times. After being falsely accused of treason, Penn was forced into hiding. During those three years of imposed solitude, he had time to think, reflect, and reevaluates. This book is the product of that solitude. In it, Penn distills the essence of his spiritual idealism, combining it with practicality and common sense. Translated into today's English by Eric K. Taylor, Penn's wisdom is even more accessible to the contemporary reader. In this new edition, Penn's voice can once again be heard in its simplicity and timelessness sharing his fruits of solitude.

More About William Penn

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Penn founded Pennsylvania as a "Holy Experiment" under Charles II. He was a well-known proponent of religious freedom and tolerance in England and parts of Europe, specifically as a Quaker. His convictions landed him in jail serveral times. He wrote No Cross, No Crown while imprisoned in the Tower of London. As is the case with most who carry the truth of the gospel so passionately, he spent much time in prison for what he believed.

William Penn was born in 1644 and died in 1718.

Quaker Wisdom for Everybody  Oct 1, 2003
Eric Taylor's new book on William Penn gives a welcome introduction to the values and writings of thie emminent Quaker. the book consists of a biography of Penn, a handy bibliography for more in-depth reading, and [...] extracts from one of Penn's major works, 'The Fruits of Solitude', all in modern English. Taylor has gone to great lengths to make the tranlstion to the modern idiom accurate and whilst the endeavour will dishearten purists (and others will feel that the spirituality of the text has been diminished), it makes the text more accessible. As such, this is a book aimed at a wide readership, anyone indeed who wishes to partake of Penn's wisdom on leading a good life. Penn is more remembered for his deeds than his writing but he was very influential in shaping the Quaker movement in a new direction at the end of the seventeenth century and this popular and well-priced reader presents his thought in an attractive and carefully crafted way.
Words to Live By  Aug 1, 2003
I loved Taylor's historical introduction. It really opened things up for me; I didn't have a clue about what was happening back then, and it really set the work in context. Penn was fascinating; this introduction left me wanting to know more about him. Unlike some contemporary writers, here's a guy giving wise advice who's really lived it. Penn's Fruits of Solitude are a very enjoyable collection of contemplative, proverbial insights...good material to muse on. I normally find older writings difficult, but Taylor's editing has made this very readable. Highly recommended!
Excellent and Easy to Read  Jul 6, 2003
The wisdom of William Penn is more accessible with this book which puts Penn's words into modern English. I loved many of Penn's sayings and found them still thought provoking and inspiring today.
A short, but clear historical introduction gives the reader a better sense of Penn's times.
Highly recommend. An easy read but weighty thoughts.
A fresh look at Penn's wisdom  Jun 29, 2003
Penn's wisdom was timeless and practical. The truth that scored three hundred years ago is still hitting the mark today. Mr. Taylors' modern language edition sharpens the point for modern readers and helps the spiritual truths penetrate. Without the barrier of archaic language, Penn shines through all the more.

The historical introduction alone makes this book a good buy. Mr. Taylor has boiled a sea of Biographical information into a salty context that gives the reflections a better flavor.
