"What was the beginning, or how began it, or what was before it?

 

Erst was the age / when nothing was:
Nor sand nor sea, / nor chilling stream-waves;
Earth was not found, / nor Ether-Heaven,--
A Yawning Gap, / but grass was none."

The Poetic Edda, The Beguiling of Gylfi – Gylfaginning

"It is sad another heaven is to the southward and upward of this one, and it is called Andlangr;

but the third heaven is yet above that, and it is called Vídbáinn, and in that heaven we think this abode is.

But we believe that none but Light-Elves inhabit these mansions now."

 

The Poetic Edda, The Beguiling of Gylfi – Gylfaginning

The moon knew not / what Might he had;

The stars knew not / where stood their places.

"Then Gangleri asked: "What is the way to heaven from earth?"

Then Hárr answered, and laughed aloud: "Now, that is not wisely asked; has it not been told thee, that the gods made a bridge from earth, to heaven, called Bifröst? Thou must have seen it; it may be that ye call it rainbow. It is of three colors, and very strong, and made with cunning and with more magic art than other works of craftsmanship. But strong as it is, yet must it be broken, when the sons of Múspell shall go forth harrying."
