Anon Hsv 66VII/6 — síðir

Friðsamr við annan        skyldi firða hverr,
        þótt hann meira megi;
opt sá hefniz,        er halloki verðr,
        ok vegr síðan sigr.

Hverr firða skyldi friðsamr við annan, þótt hann megi meira; opt hefniz sá, er halloki verðr, ok vegr sigr síðan.

Every man should be peaceable towards another, although he may be stronger; often he who is defeated avenges himself, and later wins victory.
