Quote of the Day


Geðenc hwelc witu us ða becomon for ðisse worulde, ða ða we hit nohwæðer ne selfe ne lufodon ne eac oðrum monnum ne lefdon! Remember what punishments befell us in this world when we ourselves did not cherish learning nor transmit it to other men.

—Alfred the Great

Þæt is nu hraðost to secganne, þæt ic wilnode weorðfullice to libbanne þa hwile þe ic lifede, and æfter minum life þæm monnum to læfanne þe æfter me wæren min gemyndig on godum weorcum. I desired to live worthily as long as I lived, and to leave after my life, to the men who should come after me, the memory of me in good works.

—Alfred the Great
