Xanthippe

A Quote by Henry Fielding on xanthippe and socrates

She was, besides, a profest follower of that noble sect founded by Xantippe of old; by means of which she became more formidable in the school than her husband; for, to confess the truth, he was never master there, or anywhere else, in her presence.

Henry Fielding (1707 - 1754)
