Anon Hsv 79VII/5 — gunna

Margsnotr maðr,        sá er fyrir meinum verðr,
        láti sinn eigi hryggja hug;
góðs at vænta        skal gumna hverr,
        þótt hann sé til dauða dæmdr.

Margsnotr maðr, sá er verðr fyrir meinum, láti eigi hryggja hug sinn; hverr gumna skal góðs at vænta, þótt hann sé dæmdr til dauða.

A very wise man who meets with misfortunes should not let them distress his mind; every man must expect good, although he may be sentenced to death.
