Odin (from The Prose Edda)

Odin (From The Prose Edda by Snorri Sturluson, 1179-1241)

“A handsome hall stands under the ash beside the well. Out of this hall come three maidens, who are called Urd [Fate], Verdandi [Becoming] and Skuld [Obligation]. These maidens shape men’s lives. We call them the norns.”
