“Yang terbaik adalah menjadi setengah bijak, tidak terlalu bodoh dan terlalu pandai. Orang pandai yang pengetahuannya dalam jarang merasakan kebahagiaan di hatinya.”
Jesse Byock, The Prose Edda

“During the summers they traveled widely through the forests, killing men for booty.”
Jesse L. Byock, The Saga of the Volsungs

“And when it was clear that Svipdag was determined to leave, his father gave him a great axe, a handsome and dangerous weapon. Svip then counselled his son: "Do not envy others and avoid arrogance, for such conduct diminishes one's fame. Defend yourself if you are attacked. It is becoming to be humble, yet at the same time you must make a bold showing if put to a test.”
Jesse L. Byock, The Saga of King Hrolf Kraki
