Cá ben dobér?...

“Cá ben dobér?” ar in mac.
“Da fagair na móra finna ocus na báingela duba, tabair íet.”

(what * woman * I will take * quoth * the * son /
if * you find * the * big * blondes * and * the * white-bright * dark ones * take * them)

“What woman shall I take?” said the son.
“If you can find the big blondes and the dark-haired ones with white skin, take them.”

So the son asks, so the father replies. This is from a much longer dialogue in which the father advises his son on marriage, which was edited by Meyer in ZCP 8, 113.
