Homer (Ὅμηρος) (c. 8th century BC) Ancient Greek Epic Poet

[Odysseus in The Odyssey] “A man may be quite insignificant to look at but the gods can grace his words with charm: people watch him with delight as he speaks unfalteringly with winning modesty. He stands out in the gathering and is stared at like a god when he passes through the town. Another may be as handsome as an immortal, yet quite deficient in the graceful art of speech.” — Homer
