Daily Hávamál from Huginn’s Heathen Hof – Stanza 6

daily-6

Original-
At hyggjandi sinni
skylit maðr hrœsinn vera
heldr gætinn at geði
þá er horskr ok þögull
kømr heimisgarða til
sjaldan verðr viti vörum
því at óbrigðra vin
fær maðr aldregi
en manvit mikit

Translation-
One should not boast
of their intellect.
The wise man is silent,
and rarely gets himself
into trouble.
In all the world,
there is no friend more trustworthy
than Common Sense.
-Hávamál: Stanza 6
