GEORGE FOX (*2 Items) 1624 — 1690 (Quaker)
Not long after his spiritual awakening, Fox had a second experience in 1648, when he was
24 years old. He stated:
Now I was come in spirit through the Flaming Sword, into the Paradise of God. All things
were new, and all creation gave another smell unto me than before, beyond what words can utter. I knew nothing but pureness, and innocency, and righteousness, being renewed in the image of God by Jesus Christ…

I knew Jesus and he was precious to my soul; but I found something within that would not
be sweet and patient and kind; I did what I could to keep it down, but it was there; I besought the Lord to do something for me, and when I gave Him my will He came in, and took out all that would not be sweet and patient and kind, and then He shut the door.
