Note to stanza
[All]: Lat. parallel: (Dist. I, 18) Cum fueris felix, quae sunt adversa, caveto: / non eodem cursu respondent ultima primis ‘When you are happy, be on your guard against adverse things; the end does not always follow the same course as that begun’. The text of 1199ˣ might have been influenced by Sól 34. The dangers of being rich are also mentioned in, e.g., Hávm 10/4-5 (NK, 18): auði betra | þiccir þat í ókunnom stað ‘better than riches [common sense] will seem in an unfamiliar place’ (Larrington 1996, 15).
