100 Memorable Quotes By Homer To Live By
Homer was an author, intellectual and philosopher in ancient Greece, who is credited with writing two of the greatest epics in the history of literature. There is no consensus as to the ancient period in which he lived; some estimates place it at 850 BCE while others place it at around 1102 BCE. There have been plenty of ancient Greek authors who are considered to be among the greatest in the world and Homer towers above all of them for being the original master. One of Greece’s greatest thinkers Plato called him ‘the first teacher’ and went on to state that Homer was the one who ‘taught Greece’. Homer penned the ‘Iliad’ and the ‘Odyssey’; the two great epics of ancient Greece and has firmly cemented his place among the greatest poets in the world. Homer was also an outstanding orator and it is estimated that a large bulk of his work was in the form of speeches. Most of those speeches provided the intellectuals of a later age with the template of making a persuasive argument as regards to the topic of their choice. As such, it is not a sur-prise that Homer has left behind a great many quotes that would be relevant forever and here are some of the select ones.
