"Listen, friends, to the words that will distress you. Let me tell you the prophecies of Teiresias and Aeaean Circe. They clearly warned me to avoid the island of Helios, the comforter of mortals: here the greatest danger would lie. So, row the black ship on the past island."- Odysseus
"Let us give way to the dark night, and take up our supper on shore by the swift ship, then embark in the morning, an put out once more into the wide waters"-Eurylochus
Odysseus and his crew came upon Thrinacia, the island of Helios the sun god.
"Indeed you have conquered my lone voice, Eurylochus. But let all of you swear me a solemn oath that non of you, his mind clouded with error, will kill a cow or sheep of any herd of cattle or flock we find, bu only eat the food of deathless Circe gave us."-Odysseus
Eurylochus tries to persuade Odysseus to let the crew rest on the island.
Odysseus allows the crew to rest on the island as long as they swear an oath.
Odysseus and his crew went ashore for a meal and mourned the loses of the men as Zeus stirred up a storm.
