Anon Hsv 111VII/5 — saman

Gálauss maðr,        sá er eigi vill gott nema,
        kann eigi við víti varaz;
ógæfu sinni        veldr hann einn saman;
        engum er ilt skapat.

Gálauss maðr, sá er eigi vill nema gott, kann eigi varaz við víti; hann veldr einn saman ógæfu sinni; engum er ilt skapat.

The careless man who does not want to learn good cannot guard against punishment; he alone causes his bad luck; nobody is destined to something bad.
