"By god, I'd rather slave on earth for another man - some dirt-poor tenant farmer who scrapes to keep alive - than rule down here over all the breathless dead." Achilles says this in a bitter retort to Odysseus, after Odysseus has congratulated him on reigning over the land of the dead like a king.
