Some Fruits of Solitude By: William Penn
I received this book from New Leaf Publishing in exchange for a review. This book was a wonderful surprise! It is republished from a 1907 publication. The pages are even ragged to look like the old printing, but with a new look and feel. The proverbs, wisdom, and principles for better living included in the book are still relevant today. Advice about marriage: But in marriage do thou be wise; prefer the Person before Money, Vertue before Beauty, the Mind before the Body: Then thou hast a Wife, a Friend, a Companion, a Second Self; one that bears an equal Share with thee in all thy Toyls and Troubles. The language is authentic to Penn’s time, but the proverbs, wisdom, and principles can still be applied today. Check out this book and enjoy these time-wise fruits.
