"Are you the Beowulf who took on breca in a swimming match on the open sea, risking the water just to prove that you could win?" (Line: 506- 508)
"The ocean swayed, Winter went wild in the waves, but you vied For seven nights; and then he outswam you, came ashore the stronger contender. He was cast up safe and sound one morning Among the Heathoreams, then made his way To where he belonged in Bronding country, Home again, sure of his ground." (Line: 515-522)
"No matter, therefore, how you may have fared in every bout and battle until now, This time you'll be worsted; no one has ever outlasted an entire night against Grendel." (Line: 525-528)
"when the going was heavy in those high waves, I was the strongest swimmer of all. We'd been children together and we grew up Daring ourselves to undo each other, Boasting and urging each other to risk our lives on the sea. And so it turned out. Each of us swam holding a sword, A naked, hard-proofed blade for protection Against the whale-beast." (Line: 533-541)
"The sleep of the sword, they slopped and floated Like the ocean's leavings. From now on Sailors would be safe, the deep-sea raids Were over for good. Light came from the east, Bright guarantee of God, and the waves Went quiet; I could see the headlands And buffeted cliffs." (Line: 566-572)
"Now I cannot recall Any fight you entered, Unferth, That bears comparison. I don't boast when I say That neither you nor Breca were ever much Celebrated for swordsmanship or for facing danger on the field battle." (Line: 582-587)
