By Sam Zaborowski

Quote 1
Quote 2
"So every day I wove on the great loom, but every night by torchlight I unwove it; and so for three years I deceived the Akhaians." (Homer 358)

This shows Penelope's intelligence to successfully deceive the suitors by tricking them
Quote 3
"The one who easily handles and strings the bow and shoots through all twelve axes I shall marry..." (Homer 371)

This again shows Penelope's intelligence, because she knows that the suitors have only a very slim chance of succeeding this feat
Quote 1
"Greetings, stranger! Welcome to our feast. There will be time to tel your errand later." (Homer 5)

This shows the hospitality of Telemakhos to a random stranger, who he offered much to, considering the fact that he did not know the stranger
Quote 2
"You old goat, go outside, cuddle your supper; get out, or a torch may kindle you behind!" (Homer 355)

Quote 2
"Orestes killed the snake who killed his father." (Homer 44)

This showes the loyalty the Orestes had to his dead father, which was enough for him to seek vengence.
Quote 3
"Would god it all came true! You'd see the fight that's in me!" (Homer 382)

In this scene, the cowherd says that if Odysseus were to come back, he would fight for him, showing his loyalty to Odysseus.
"My name is nohbdy... Nohbdy's my meat.." (Homer 156)

During this scene, Odysseus uses his intelligence to trick Polyphemus the Kyklops into thinking his name was "nohbdy" (nobody), so that the Kyklops would sound stupid and get no help
