Some Fruits of Solitude: Book Review

I'm a gal who appreciates good, solid, encouraging quotes. A lot can be said in a few words. And I appreciate when someone takes the time and gathers up quotes and puts them all together in book form. Makes it a lot easier for me when I'm trying to pick quotes for my blackboards!

This is one of those books that I do appreciate. Some Fruits of Solitude, a conglomeration of quotes by William Penn, the founder of the state of Pennsylvania.

As you can see, the quotes in this book are organized topically. This is great because it makes it much easier to find quotes about the particular subject you're searching for...

I LOVE this little book. And like every other Attic Books book I've ever read, this book is gorgeous with its rough edge pages and solid hardcover. Makes it a great little book to leave out on the coffee table.

The book is a reprint of a version originally printed in 1963. Therefore, the language is the old English way of speaking. This could be a downfall to some, but I appreciate the beautiful, poetic form of this type of writing. You just have to slow down and really think about what you're reading!

Love this book! Would be great for the person who collects quotes!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from New Leaf Publishing Group in exchange for my honest opinion.*
