How can you hope to garner all the gifts at once?
One man is a splendid fighter – a god has made him so –
one’s a dancer, another skilled at lyre and song,
and deep in the next man’s chest farseeing Zeus
plants the gift of judgment, good clear sense.
And many reap the benefits of that treasure:
troops of men he saves, as he himself knows best.

– Homer

The Iliad, Book 13, lines 842-848. Polydamas begs Hector to be reasonable and to fall back and regroup. Because some god has exalted Hector in battle, Polydamas warns him that he thinks he can beat the rest at tactics too. But Polydamas points out that the gods give each person a gift, one is a great fighter, another a dancer, another has the gift of judgment. He is advising Hector to have regard to his own limits.
