Odin (from Hávamál)

Odin (Norse god)

“No man is so good that he has no blemish,
nor so bad that he is good for nothing.”

  • This quote comes from stanza 133 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 Carolyne Larrington (Oxford University Press, 2014).
