[All]: Lat. parallel: (sent. 9) saluta libenter ‘greet willingly’. The idea that one should talk to other people and ask them for news is also expressed in some sts of Hávm. Cf. Hávm 63 (NK, 27): Fregna oc segia | scal fróðra hverr, | sás vill heitinn horskr ‘Asking questions and answering, this every wise man should do, he who wants to be reputed intelligent’ (Larrington 1996, 22). Cf. also Hávm 28 (NK, 21): Fróðr sá þycciz, | es fregna kann, | oc segia hit sama ‘Wise that man seems who knows how to question and how to answer as well’ (Larrington 1996, 18).
