Odin (from Hávamál)

Odin (Norse god)

“Never be made glad by wickedness
but please yourself with good things.”

  • This quote comes from stanza 128 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).
