Beowulf (Unknown Author)

Beowulf is a poem written by an unknown author in an unknown year, though it's believed to originate around the year 1000 (give or take a few hundred years). 
I must admit that I haven't read the entire epic as  the story is quite boring, yet I appreciate the history of the poem and the age of a thousand years or more bestowed upon it.
There are two quotes that are worthy of reading, and they still make sense after all these years.

“Anyone with gumption and a sharp mind will take the measure of two things: what's said and what's done.” 
― Seamus HeaneyBeowulf

“Behaviour that's admired
is the path to power among people everywhere.” 

― Seamus HeaneyBeowulf
