The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae can help you find ancient Greek texts by author and title searches.  It can also help you find texts containing words and phrases like the Greek version of the Boston College motto, "ever to excel" or αἰὲν ἀριστεύειν.  Searching the TLG for this phrase came up with five hits, two of which are from Homer's Iliad:

1. Homerus Epic., Ilias.  Book 6 line 208.  
πέμπε δέ μ’ ἐς Τροίην, καί μοι μάλα πόλλ’ ἐπέτελλεν
αἰὲν ἀριστεύειν καὶ ὑπείροχον ἔμμεναι ἄλλων,
μηδὲ γένος πατέρων αἰσχυνέμεν, οἳ μέγ’ ἄριστοι
2. Homerus Epic., Ilias.  Book 11 line 784.  
  Πηλεὺς μὲν ᾧ παιδὶ γέρων ἐπέτελλ’ Ἀχιλῆϊ
 αἰὲν ἀριστεύειν καὶ ὑπείροχον ἔμμεναι ἄλλων·
σοὶ δ’ αὖθ’ ὧδ’ ἐπέτελλε Μενοίτιος Ἄκτορος υἱός·  (785)
