Original-
Bú er betra
þótt lítit sé
halr er heima hverr
þótt tvær geitr
eigi ok taugreptan sal
þat er þó betra an bœn

Translation-
Even a small home
is better than none
At home, each person is
their own master.
Even if all you own
is two goats
and a thatched roof,
it’s still better than begging
on the street.
