Hávamál
The Sayings of the Vikings
taken from a new translation by Björn Jónasson,
published by Gudrun, Iceland, 1996 - ISBN 9979-9070-1-0
Renown

Cattle die
kinsmen die
all men are mortal.
Words of praise
will never perish
nor a noble name.

(So, do care about how you will be remembered).
You can see a picture of a tattoo with the text here.

Prosperity

The brave and generous
have the best lives.
They're seldom sorry.
The unwise man
is always worried,
fears favours to repay.

 

Agility

Rise early
attend to work
if there is no helping hand.
The morning sleeper
has much undone.
The quick will catch the prize.

How to Preserve Friendship

Go you must.
No guest shall stay
in one place for ever.
Love will be lost
if you sit too long
at a friend's fire.

§2
If you don't understand it, it must be magic!

The quotations are from the following persons:

  1. Piet Hein - Danish poet & philosopher
  2. Jenny Holzer - American word artist & poet
  3. Søren Kierkegaard - Danish philosopher
