7 Best George Fox Quotes



George Fox Quotes

George Fox was a British Dissenter who founded the Religious Society of Friends or simply Friends/ Quakers. During the times of social upheaval and war in the mid-1640s to late 1660s, George protested against the religious and political groups who exercised immense authority in the society.

Fox was against the political and religious practices of his time, which were very traditional. He traveled across Britain and several other countries as a dissenting preacher. However, the authorities did not approve of his actions because of his unusual approach to religion. He was thrown out of meetings, beaten, stoned, and thrown into jail many times.

George had an uncompromising nature, despite the rejection and cruel treatment from the society and authorities, he continued preaching. Over time, he garnered a handful of disciples and supporters.

Fox’s quotes are spiritual in nature. But on closer inspection, they are very thought provoking and also challenge you to retrospect.
