Havamal Snippets 5: Learn by Travelling

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
5. Wit is needful
to him who travels far:
at home all is easy.
A laughing-stock is he
who nothing knows,
and with the instructed sits.
Learn, travel the world by your mind and by your feet. If you do, then you will grow knowledgable, and doing will become easy. If you don't then you will be considered foolish.
