Iliad I, lines 172-178

            Then in response, Agamemnon, master of men, retorted:
            “Go on and run, if your heart so compels you—desert us, but I won’t
            beg you to stay here on my account.  There are plenty of others
175      here who will honor me, most of all Zeus with his wisest counsel.
            You, out of all of the kings who are nurtured by God, are the most vile.
            Conflict has always been dear to your heart, and warfare and combat.
            If you’re so strong, it is only a gift that a god has given.
