Anon Hsv 129VII/1 — eigi ‘not’

Vertu eigi svá aumr,        at þú eigi gáir
        at vænta ins vildara hlutar,
né svá auðugr,        at þér örvænt sé
        meins á marga vega.

Vertu eigi svá aumr, at þú gáir eigi at vænta ins vildara hlutar, né svá auðugr, at sé þér örvænt meins á marga vega.

Do not be so miserable that you do not remember to expect the more pleasant fate, nor so wealthy that you are not dismayed by injury in many ways.
