John Ploughman's Talk

John Ploughman's TalkJohn Ploughman's Talk: Plain Advice for Plain People by Charles H. Spurgeon.

Mr. Spurgeon said—"In John Ploughman's Talk I have written for ploughmen and common people. . . . these lowly pages may teach thrift and industry all the days of the week in the cottage and the workshop." This is a book of proverbs written in a semi-humorous tone. Mr. Spurgeon uses a fictional character, John Ploughman, to illustrate his wisdom about everyday life. He promotes the virtuous and exposes the immoral in many thoughts, sayings, quotations, and Bible verses.
