Odin (from Hamaval)

Odin (from Hávamál)

“Cattle die,
kin die
self dies too;
a good name,
if you get one,
goes on forever”

  • This quote comes from stanza 76 of Hávamál (Sayings of the High One), an old poem which was preserved in the 13th-century Poetic Edda which was produced anonymously in Iceland. The translation is by David A. H. Evans (Viking Society for Northern Research, 1986).
