Daily Hávamál from Huginn’s Heathen Hof – Stanza 8

daily-8

Original-
Hinn er sæll
er sér of getr
lof ok líknstafi
ódælla er við þat
er maðr eiga skal
annars brjóstum í

Translation-
It’s a fortunate man who
earns the respect of others
through his own deeds.
It’s more difficult
if you must rely on the words of others
to build your reputation.
