Sentence of the day

by jimwood8

Can one post a “sentence of the day” without posting one every day? At any rate, here is the sentence of the day, since it involves (1)  ‘get’ (under the ‘manage’ reading, I assume?), (2) -anlegur ‘-able’, and (3) stylistic fronting:

Við         breytum því           sem     breytanlegt er
we.nom  change    that.dat   which  changeable  is

en  sættum     okkur       við    það   sem     við fáum ekki breytt.
but reconcile  ourselves  with  that  which  we get    not  changed

‘We change what is changeable but accept what we can’t change.’
