Each sloka is identified below by the Kanda (1 for Balakanda, 2 forAyodhya Kanda etc),chapter number within the Kanda, and serial number of the sloka within the chapter:

1.तपस्स्वाध्यायनिरतं तपस्वी वाग्विदां वरम्।
नारदं परिपप्रच्छ वाल्मीकिर्मुनिपुङ्गवम् ॥ (१.१.१)
Tapaswadhyaya niratham,
Thapaswee vag vidhamvaram,
Narada pariprucha,
Valmikir muni pungavam
The great sage Valimiki asked Narada,
Who does penance and reading of Vedas,
And who himself was a great sage,
As well as an expert over words.
Valmiki’s questions are expressed in the following slokas:
कोन्वस्मिन् सांप्रतं लोके गुणवान् कश्च वीर्यवान्।
धर्मज्ञश्च कृतज्ञश्च सत्यवाक्यो दृढव्रतः ॥ (१.१.२)
चारित्रेण च को युक्तः सर्वभूतेषु को हितः ।
विद्वान् कः कस्समर्थश्च कश्चैकप्रियदर्शनः॥(१.१.३)
आत्मवान् को जितक्रोधः द्युतिमान् कोऽनसूयकः।
कस्य बिभ्यति देवाश्च जातरोषस्य संयुगे ॥(१.१.४)
एतदिच्छाम्यहं श्रोतुं परं कौतूहलं हि मे।
महर्षे त्वं समर्थोऽसि ज्ञातुमेवं विधं नरं ॥(१.१.५)
O Naradamuni, Is there any man on this earth now who has all sterling qualities, who is valiant, who knows what is dharma, who acknowledges with gratitude whatever help is rendered to him, who always speaks the truth, who is firm on his commitments, whose conduct is unblemished, who thinks of the welfare of all beings, who is wise and competent, who has a pleasing appearance, who is rooted in his Atma, who has conquered anger, who gives out light, who is not envious and whom even the devas fear when he is afire with anger in a war?  I want to hear about him from you. I am keenly interested in this. You must be knowing someone with all these attributes.

Sathaneeyam Narendrasya,
Thadasadhya vyathishtitha.

Went near and standing outside and praised and,
Narrated the detailed pedigree of the king.

Become obedient to Sugreeva.
Vali’s words, on his death bed, to Angada
“ Wait for the appropriate place and time,
taking with equanimity both likes and dislikes and
pleasure and pain which occur over a period of time
and put yourself under the control of Sugriva”

प्रष्टव्याश्चापि सीतायाः प्रवृत्तिं विनयान्वितैः ॥ (४.४३.३४)

Many Rakshasas died,
And I consider that valorous Rama,
As the real God Narayana.

These are the musings of Ravana when many of his commanders and his brother Kumbhakarna were put to death by Rama and Lakshmana.

For they had lost their senses by the great arrow,

तथा लोकस्य साक्षी मां सर्वतः पातु पावकः ॥

यथा मां शुद्धचारित्रां दुष्टां जानाति राघवः।
तथा लोकस्य साक्षी मां सर्वतः पातु पावकः ॥

Become our common property,
