Wotan`s Rune Poem:
A seventeenth I know, through a wise law
To enclose two lives in love;
And every one is willing: no virginal woman
Will leave me after this very easily.

Old English Rune Poem:
Steed is noblemen`s joy before heroes,/a hoof-proud horse,
where about it warriors/rich in stallions
exchange words/and is always a comfort to the restless.

Guido von List: "Marriage is the raw-root of the Aryans!"
