Anon Hsv 87VII/2 — getr ‘is’

Manndáð meiri        getr eigi fyrir mold ofan,
        en kenna góð ráð gum*um;
ódyggt líf        mundu ýtar hafa,
        ef bætti engi yfir.

Getr eigi meiri manndáð fyrir mold ofan en kenna gum*um góð ráð; ýtar mundu hafa ódyggt líf, ef engi bætti yfir.

There is no greater act of prowess on earth than to teach men good advice; people would have a worthless life if nobody were to improve it.
