The Iliad, Books 10-24 More Iliad quotes
Sing, goddess, of Achilles' ruinous anger
Which brought ten thousand pains to the Achaeans,
And cast the souls of many stalwart heroes
To Hades, and their bodies to the dogs
And birds of prey.
The Iliad
First lines, Book 1.
Over the wine-dark sea.
The Iliad

Winged words.
The Iliad
Book 1.
Nothing can be revoked or said in vain
nor unfulfilled if I should nod my head.
The Iliad
Zeus explains the absolute power of his will to Thetis, mother of Achilles, Book 1.
With them went Athena, holding her goatskin-tippet, precious, unfading, incorruptible, with a hundred dangling tassels of solid gold, neatly braided, worth each a hundred oxen. Through the host she passed, dazzling them with the vision, and filling each heart with courage to wage war implacable and unceasing. In a moment war became sweeter to them than to sail back safely to their own native land.

Thick as autumnal leaves, or driving sand,
The moving squadrons blacken all the strand.

Book 2.
Paris, you handsome, woman-mad deceiver,
you shouldn't have been born, or killed unmarried.
I wish you had - it would have been far better
Than having you our shame, whom all suspect,
Or having the long-haired Acheans laugh
When you appear as champion-champion beauty -
But have no strength, nor character, nor courage.
The Iliad
Hector rebukes his brother for lack of honor, Book 3.

Gods! How the son degenerates from the sire!
The Iliad
Book 4.
But loud clamorous cries resounded throughout the Trojan host: for they had not one speech and one language, but a confusion of tongues, since they were called from many lands. They were like a huge flock of ewes innumerable standing in a wide farmyard to be milked, which bleat without ceasing as they hear the cries of their lambs.
The Iliad
Book 4.
Son of Atreus, what manner of speech has escaped the barrier of your teeth?
The Iliad
Book 4.
The generation of men is like that of leaves. The wind scatters one year's leaves on the ground, but the forest burgeons and and puts out others, as the season of spring comes round. So it is with men: on generation grows on, and another is passing away.
The Iliad

Always to be best, and to be distinguished above the rest.

No man, against my fate, sends me to Hades'.
And as for fate, I'm sure no man escapes it,
Neither a good nor bad man, once he's born.

Victory passes back and forth between men.

Clanless, lawless, homeless is he who is in love with civil war, that brutal ferocious thing.
The Iliad
Book 9.
A generous friendship no cold medium knows,
Burns with one love, with one resentment glows.
The Iliad
Book 9.
Injustice, swift, erect, and unconfin’d,
Sweeps the wide earth, and tramples o’er mankind.
The Iliad

Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.
The Iliad
Book 9.
But why must the Argives fight
the Trojans? Why did Atreus' son assemble
and bring us? Wasn't it for Helen's sake?
Are Atreus' sons the only men
who love their wives?
The Iliad
Achilles, questioning motives for Trojan war as Odysseus tries to bring him back to the fighting, Book 9.
