C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Homer
 
  Like Shakespeare, for all time.
Emerson.    
  1
  Homer excels all the inventors of other arts in this: that he has swallowed up the honor of those who succeeded him.
Pope.    
  2
  Milton is the most sublime, and Homer the most picturesque.
Robert Hall.    
  3
        I can no more believe old Homer blind,
Than those who say the sun hath never shin’d;
The age therein he liv’d was dark, but he
Could not want sight who taught the world to see.
Denham.    
  4
        Read Homer once, and you can read no more,
For all books else appear so mean, so poor;
Verse may seem prose; but still persist to read,
And Homer will be all the books you need.
Duke of Buckinghamshire.
