Glum Thorkelsson


Glum Thorkelsson (10th or 11th century)

“Good luck to the old.
Good luck to the young.”

  • Glum Thorkelsson’s saying was recorded by Sturla Thordarson in the Sturlubók (produced c. 1275-1280), the oldest existent version of the Icelandic Book of Settlements. The translation used here was by Hermann Pálsson and Paul Edwards (University of Manitoba Press, 1772, 2006).
