Must read Homer's Odyssey.....but I think The Iliad comes first

Did you know that Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey were Western Civilizations first complete stories? True story. I mean, yeah, you know what I mean. The main characters section of The Iliad takes up nine pages. There's a rejection right there.

Ulysses Everett McGill
: Deceitful, two-faced she-woman. Never trust a female Delmar, remember that one simple precept and your time with me will not have been ill spent.
Delmar O'Donnell: Ok, Everett.
Ulysses Everett McGill: Hit by a train! Truth means nothing to a woman, Delmar. Triumph of the subjective. You ever been with a woman?
Delmar O'Donnell: Well, I... I... I gotta get the family farm back before I can start thinking about that.
Ulysses Everett McGill: That's right, if then. Believe me Delmar, woman is the most fiendish instrument of torture ever devised to bedevil the days of man.
