Passage

Socrates, the great Greek philosopher, tried hard to control himself and was resolved never to make a show of his temper. He believed that an angry man was more beast than a human being. He had a wife who used to lose her temper on the slightest excuse and tried her utmost to irritate the cool, calm philosopher. One day the woman became more furious than ever and began to insult Socrates. Socrates determined not to be put out and to leave her alone, went away and sat on the doorstep of his house. The wife, finding that Socrates was not paying the least heed to her loud and angry scolding, went up to him and emptied a pot full of water over him. The passers-by in the street were much amused at the incident and Socrates joined them in their laughter and quickly remarked, "I was expecting this: after thunder, comes rain."
