“A wet man does not fear the rain”

"A wet man does not fear the rain” is an inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. “One already wet does not fear the rain” was listed as a Turkish proverb in Scribner’s Monthly in October 1873.

“A man who is drenched does not fear the rain” was published in The Christian Science Monitor (Boston, MA) on February 1, 1960. ”The donkey that has died, the hyena does not fear After something bad has happened to a man he no longer needs to fear it (once wet a person does not fear the rain)” was published in the book Proverbs and Sayings of the Oromo People of Ethiopia and Kenya (1992) by George Cotter.

“A wet man does not fear the rain” was posted on Twitter on August 12, 2010.


October 1873, Scribner’s Monthly, “Turkish Proverbs,” pg. 693, col. 2:
82. One already wet does not fear the rain.

I was about to say: “‘A man who is drenched does not fear the rain,’” but it seemed too apropos.

A swimmer in the ocean does not fear the rain

“A swimmer in the ocean does not fear the rain” is not a line in a Bob Dylan song. Maybe it should have been. This kind of poetry is something I find very effective.

26 November 2009, The Advertiser (Adelaide, Australia), “Mouthing Off” by Marty Smith, pg. 18:
Russian proverb: A wet man does not fear the rain.
