Mar ek þér þann gef
er þik um myrkvan berr
vísan vafrloga
ok það sverð
er sjálft mun vegaz
ef sá er horskr er hefir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I’ll give you that horse which will carry you through the knowing,
dark, flickering flame,
and that sword which will fight by itself
if he who wields it is wise.’)
