Homer Quoations (Greek epic poet, 800 BC to 700 BC, known as “Mr Iliad”):
~ “I detest that man who hides one thing in the depths of his heart, and speaks for another.”
~ “A generation of men is like a generation of leaves; the wind scatters some leaves upon the ground, while others the burgeoning wood brings forth – and the season of spring comes on. So of men one generation springs forth and another ceases.”
~ “Once harm has been done, even a fool understands it.”
~ “There is a strength in the union even of very sorry men.”
~ “Young men’s minds are always changeable, but when an old man is concerned in a matter, he looks both before and after.”
~ “Zeus does not bring all men’s plans to fulfillment.”
~ “The gods, likening themselves to all kinds of strangers, go in various disguises from city to city, observing the wrongdoing and the righteousness of men.”
~ “There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.”
~ “You ought not to practice childish ways, since you are no longer that age.”
~ “And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.”
~ “The charity that is a trifle to us can be precious to others.”
~ “Yet, taught by time, my heart has learned to glow for other’s good, and melt at other’s woe.”
