A saying

I feel like sharing an old wisdom from my favorite texts. This one is from Hávamál, the Sayings of the High One (meaning Odin). First the Old Norse original:

Ósviðr maðr
vakir um allar nætr
ok hyggr at hvívetna
þá er móðr
er at morni kømr
alt er vil sem var.

And the English translation:

The unwise man
is awake all night
and thinks of all sorts of things
then he is tired
when morning comes
and all the trouble is as it was.
