"Another time I was working in the laundry, ...

... and the Sister opposite, while washing handkerchiefs, repeatedly
splashed me with dirty water. My first impulse was to draw back and
wipe my face, to show the offender I should be glad if she would
behave more quietly; but the next minute I thought how foolish it was
to refuse the treasures God offered me so generously, and I refrained
from betraying my annoyance. On the contrary, I made such efforts to
welcome the shower of dirty water, that at the end of half an hour I
had taken quite a fancy to this novel kind of aspersion, and I
resolved to come as often as I could to the happy spot where such
treasures were freely bestowed." -- St. Therese of Lisieux
