Hi there,

I'm hoping to get all of these virtues tattooed on my body at one point or another, and I'd like it done in Gaelic. I'd also like to make sure that I have the appropriate translation. Can anyone on this forum help?

I've included what I think is a good Gaelic translation next to each of the English words. Do they match the descriptions well? If not, what would be a better word?

COURAGE - meanmna
By facing Life's struggles with courage, we constantly extend our capabilities. Without courage, nothing else can be done!

TRUTH - firinn
Blind faith has no place in Asatru. No pie-in-the-sky; we must act in this world as we see it and as it really is rather than calmly wait for the next

HONOUR - urran
We must be true to what we are, and we insist on acting with nobility rather than baseness. Our standards must be banners held high in our hearts.

FIDELITY - dilseachd
We stand true to our faith and our values. Loyalty is the basis for all enduring human activity, and we hold it in the highest esteem.

HOSPITALITY - aoigheachd
The isolation and loneliness of modern life is not necessary. The willingness to share what one has with ones' fellows, especially travelers, is a vital part of our way of life.

We hold to the discipline necessary to fulfill our purpose. We stand willing to exercise the self-control and steadfastness necessary in these difficult times.

Let us dare to be all that we can be! Let us take risks and taste the richness of life. Passivity is for sheep. We refuse to be mere spectators in life.

SELF-RELIANCE - féin-urrachd
We depend on our own strength and character to achieve our goals. We seek only the freedom necessary to our quest, whatever it may be.

We hold to our path until its completion and are not ashamed to be strong. The cult of the anti-hero will find no support in us, and the gods we follow are not for the weak.

Thanks for the help smile.gif

This is a bit out of my league. One of these translation services will be able to help you:
