Anon Sól 28VII/6 — hyggr ‘consider’

Æsta þykkir        einkum vandliga,
        þess er þykkir vant vera;
alls á mis verðr,        sá er einskis biðr;
        fár hyggr þegjanda þörf.

Þykkir æsta einkum vandliga, þess er þykkir vant vera; sá er einskis biðr, verðr alls á mis; fár hyggr þörf þegjanda.

It seems [right] to ask especially carefully for what seems to be lacking; he who asks for nothing, will go amiss in everything; few consider the need of the one who is silent.
