Odysseus quotes

Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?

This war will never be forgotten, nor will the heroes who fight in it.

You have your sword, I have my tricks; we play with the toys the gods give us.

[to Achilles] War is young men dying and old men talking. You know this.

It's no insult to say a dead man is dead.

[to Achilles] Let Achilles fight for honor. Let Agamemnon fight for power and let the gods decide which man to glorify. Forget about Agamemnon, fight for me. My wife will feel much better knowing you're by my side. I will feel much better.

If they ever tell my story, let them say that I walked with giants. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die. Let them say I lived in the time of Hector, tamer of horses. Let them say I lived in the time of Achilles.
