Havamal Snippets 8: Self-Respect

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):
8. He is happy,
who for himself obtains
fame and kind words:
less sure is that
which a man must have
in another’s breast. 
Value yourself; have self-respect; derive value from yourself rather than other people or things (books, concepts etc).
