Snorri Sturluson

 

Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179-1241)

“Bitter words could only
Rouse the rage of others.
Men who always quarrel
Have no wish for treaties.”

  • From an anonymous poem in King Harald’s Saga by Snorri Sturluson, translated by Magnus Magnusson and Hermann Pálsson (Penguin Classics, 1966, 2005).
