“This celebrated philosopher was born inthe year 468 B.C., in the immediate neighborhood of Athens. His father, Sophroniscus, was a sculptor, and Socrates was brought up to, and for some time practiced the same profession. He was married to Xanthippe, by whom he had three sons, but her bad temper has rendered her name proverbial for a conjugal scold. His physical constitution was healthy, robust, and wonderfully enduring.” — Smith, 1882
