Havamal Snippets 22: Those Who Laugh Eagerly are Commonly Full of Faults

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):
22. A miserable man,
and ill-conditioned,
sneers at every thing;
one thing he knows not,
which he ought to know,
that he is not free from faults. 
'Laughter is medicine' so I've been told. Perhaps the people saying such things do not know their own faults..'
