Anon Hsv 83VII/2 — eigi

Alþýðuróm        lasta þú aldrigi,
        þann er lýðir lofa;
öngum sá hugnar,        er öllum vill
        gagnmálugr geraz.

Lasta þú aldrigi alþýðuróm, þann er lýðir lofa; sá hugnar öngum, er vill geraz öllum gagnmálugr.

Never blame general acclamation which people praise; he who wants to become the opponent of everyone pleases nobody.
