Hávamál says:
Deyr fé, deyja frændur,
deyr sjálfur ið sama.
En orðstír deyr aldregi
hveim er sér góðan getur.

Deyr fé, deyja frændur,
deyr sjálfur ið sama.
Eg veit einn að aldrei deyr:
dómur um dauðan hvern.
[Cattle die, kindred die,
thyself too soon must die;
but the fair fame never dies
of him who has earned it.

Cattle die, kindred die,
thyself too soon must die;
but I know one thing that never dies, -
the doom on each one dead.]

The Viking Answer Lady says:
Cattle die, your web search fails
Thyself too soon must log off;
With Wayback Machine and Google, Gentle Reader,
You may wend your way to what you seek.
