Provoked

Let one not boast or speak with ulterior motive,
not engage in insolence or speak quarrelsome words;
not engage in deception or knowingly cheat;
not judge or despise others for their
life,
discernment,
precepts,
or practices.
Provoked with words from another,
let one not respond harshly,
for one who retaliates is not calm.
~ SN 4.14 (Tuvataka Sutta)
