Lat. parallel: (Dist. II, 28) Fortius ut valeas, interdum parcior esto: / pauca voluptati debentur, plura saluti ‘Be more forceful so that you may be strong, occasionally be more sparing. A few things are owed to pleasure, more to health’. The topic of eating too much is dealt with in Hávm 20. — [4-5]: 624’s reading of these ll. is possibly closer to the Lat.: til álfs [i.e. afls] ok heils | þarftu eigi alt at hafa ‘you do not need to have everything for strength and good fortune’.
