An Unwise Man
Hávamál Quote


  • Share post


“An unwise man stays awake all night worrying about everything, though he’s tired when morning comes, and everything’s still as it was.” Good advice from the Hávamál poem found in the Icelandic Poetic Edda. Ancient wisdom, traditionally attributed to Odin, is given a modern typographical look that will fit into any contemporary minimalist home. The quote is written in the original Old Norse with Old Norse orthography. Hang it in your bedroom to remind you to stop worrying and get some sleep.
