As a Quaker preacher, minister, and missionary in the late 17th
century, William Penn was imprisioned 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 reevaluate. Some Fruits of Solitude is the product of
that time alone. In it, Penn distills the essence of his spiritual
idealism, combining it with practicality and commons sense.

"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.
