A generous friendship no cold medium knows,
  Burns with one love, with one resentment glows;
    One should our interests and our passions be,
      My friend must hate the man that injures me.
      - The Iliad (bk. IX, l. 725),
        (Pope's translation) [Friendship]

He spake, and into every heart his words
  Carried new strength and courage.
      - The Iliad (bk. V, l. 586),
        (Bryant's translation) [Speech]

O friends, be men, and let your hearts be strong,
  And let no warrior in the heat of fight
    Do what may bring him shame in others' eyes;
      For more of those who shrink from shame are safe
        Than fall in battle, while with those who flee
          Is neither glory nor reprieve from death.
      - The Iliad (bk. V, l. 663),
        (Bryant's translation) [Courage]

One who journeying
  Along a way he knows not, having crossed
    A place of drear extent, before him sees
      A river rushing swiftly toward the deep,
        And all its tossing current white with foam,
          And stops and turns, and measures back his way.
      - The Iliad (bk. V, l. 749),
        (Bryant's translation) [Traveling]

Whose little body lodged a mighty mind.
      - The Iliad (bk. V, l. 999),

Axylos, Teuthranos's son that dwelt in stablished Arisbe; a man of substance dear to his fellows; for his dwelling was by the road-side and he entertained all men.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 12),
        (Lang's translation) [Hospitality]

He held his seat; a friend to human race.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 18),
        (Pope's translation) [Humanity]

Like leaves on trees the race of man is found,--
  Now green in youth, now withering on the ground;
    Another race the following spring supplies;
      They fall successive; and successive rise.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 181),
        (Pope's translation) [Man]

If yet not lost to all the sense of shame.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 350),
        (Pope's translation) [Shame]

A happier lot were mine,
  If I must lose thee, to go down to earth,
    For I shall have no hope when thou art gone,--
      Nothing but sorrow. Father have I none,
        And no dear mother.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 530),
        (Bryant's translation) [Sorrow]

Yet while my Hector still survives, I see
  My father, mother, brethren, all in thee.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 544),
        (Pope's translation) [Matrimony]

No living man can send me to the shades
  Before my time; no man of woman born,
    Coward or brave, can shun his destiny.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 623),
        (Bryant's translation) [Destiny]

Andromache! my soul's far better part.
      - The Iliad (bk. VI, l. 624),

He, from whose lips divine persuasion flows.
      - The Iliad (bk. VII, l. 143),

Not hate, but glory, made these chiefs contend;
  And each brave foe was in his soul a friend.

        (Pope's translation) [Contention]

I war not with the dead.
      - The Iliad (bk. VII, l. 485),
        (Pope's translation) [War]

Now from the smooth deep ocean-stream the sun
  Began to climb the heavens, and with new rays
    Smote the surrounding fields.
      - The Iliad (bk. VII, l. 525),
        (Bryant's translation) [Morning]

Now deep in ocean sunk the lamp of light,
  And drew behind the cloudy vale of night.

        (Bryant's translation) [Resolution]

Praise me not too much,
  Nor blame me, for thou speakest to the Greeks
    Who know me.
      - The Iliad (bk. X, l. 289),

Praise from a friend, or censure from a foe,
  Are lost on hearers that our merits know.

To labour is the lot of man below;
  And when Jove gave us life, he gave us woe.
