19 Viking Inspiring Quotes To Kick Off 2019

Have you achieved something in the first days of this new year 2019? If you are yet to achieve anything, don't lose heart. Because it is not too late to make this year your year. Before kicking off 2019, motivate yourself with the following Viking inspiring quotes.

Wake early
if you want
another man’s life or land.
No lamb
for the lazy wolf.
No battle’s won in bed.

Work hard in silence and let your success make a roar. Don't blame 2018 to treat you wrong. Blame yourself for letting laziness ruining the year. 2019 Viking mantra should be: early to bed, early to rise, work hard, and succeed. 

Well travelled
He is truly wise
who’s travelled far
and knows the ways of the world.
He who has travelled
can tell what spirit
governs the men he meets.

It is a cool idea to go Vikings this year. In the modern sense, if you go Vikings, you go outside to explore the world. Don't mistake this with raid and plunder. The more you travel, the more you get to know about the beautiful world around you. 

The unwise man 
is awake all night 
worries over and again.
When morning rises 
he is restless still, 
his burden as before.

The Norns gave you fate. You either let it fool you or challenge you to unleash your potential. If you toss and turn about a problem every night, you are letting it damage your health and torture your mind.

Much nonsense
a man utters
who talks without tiring.
A ready tongue
brings bad reward.

Loose lips sink ships. Rather than being a nonsense talker, be a wise listener. You are to learn something from the stories of other people. 

The lame can ride horse, the handless drive cattle, 
the deaf one can fight and prevail,
'tis happier for the blind than for him on the bale-fire,
but no man hath care for a corpse

Treasure every moment of your life. Every time you wake up, you still have an opportunity to live your life to the fullest. So show gratitude and always be thankful for every second passed. 

The unwise man 
is awake all night 
worries over and again.
When morning rises 
he is restless still, 
his burden as before. 

Calm down, warriors. Things are destined to challenge you. Even if you toss and turn over it every night, it can improve nothing but weaken your health and destroy your inner peace. Make a comfortable bed and sleep. This is good preparation for tomorrow's battle. 

Cattle die
kinsmen die
all men are mortal.
Words of praise
will never perish
nor a noble name.

This year, if you can be nice to anyone, be nice. This is a basic step to make your reputation. In the end, reputation really matters whether you believe or not. Be kind and live a good life. The next generation will remember you in a good way. 

Wisdom is welcome wherever it comes from.

Let Odin guide you on the path of wisdom. Whatever you don't know, it's knowledge. Whatever form it might come from, welcome it.

Be your friend's 
true friend.
Return gift for gift.
Repay laughter 
with laughter again 
but betrayal with treachery

Never complain and blame other for ruining your relationship with them. With hindsight, have you invested anything in the relationships? Treat your friend right and be your good friend's good friend from this year.

A king’s son should be thoughtful
thorough and silent
brave in battle.

Be responsible for what you are supposed to. 

The man who stands at a strange threshold, 
Should be cautious before he cross it, 
Glance this way and that: 
Who knows beforehand what foes may sit 
Awaiting him in the hall?

It is important that one take everything into consideration. You will never regret being careful under any circumstance. 

A small hut of one's own is better, 
A man is his master at home: 
His heart bleeds in the beggar who must 
Ask at each meal for meat.

You are someone in your home. Whenever you feel inferior to anyone, feel lucky for you have a home. At least, you have your family, three meals everyday, and a roof above your head. Many are looking at you and envy with that. 

It is safe to tell a secret to one, 
Risky to tell it to two, 
To tell it to three is thoughtless folly, 
Everyone else will know.

"One" is yourself. Keep secret for yourself. Even if you cannot keep your own secret, it is not other's business to keep yours. Mind that you are the one that can keep your secret. 

If you must journey to mountains and firths, 
Take food and fodder with you.

If you are to embark on a journey, get prepared. By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. 

If aware that another is wicked, say so: 
Make no truce or treaty with foes.

Honesty is a type of art that mediocre people cannot have. Don't settle with the evil even if it is overwhelming. Be an artist. 

Never laugh at the old 
when they offer counsel

Often their words are wise

Old but gold. Respect the elderly around you. Indeed, they somehow graduated without Google.

Where faults can be found
The good is ignored

Your excuses will not be heard if you fail. You are wasting other people's time and your own too. Strive yourself to the best. If you win, you don't need to explain. If you fail, you should not be there to explain it. 

I demolish the bridges behind me
Then there is no choice
But forward

Don't get trapped in your failure of the old year. Be positive and believe that you are going to reap a fruitful harvest this year. Move on. Because everyone else will do so. 

Do not dispute
With those drunken on wine
Or lost their wits

You should make your every word valuable. Don't argue with those who completely lose their mind. Save them for those who deserve it.
