Anon Hsv 65VII/6 — ljótr

Engan þú fyrirlít,        þótt aflvani sé
        eða ljótr ok lágskapaðr;
margr er hygginn,        þótt herviligr sé,
        ok mjök lítit megi.

Fyrirlít þú engan, þótt sé aflvani, eða ljótr ok lágskapaðr; margr er hygginn, þótt sé herviligr, ok megi mjök lítit.

You should not look down on anybody, although he may be deficient in strength or ugly and short; many a one is intelligent, although he may be wretched and is capable of very little.
