Havamal Snippets 30: "It is better to keep your mouth quiet.."

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):
30. For a gazing-stock
no man shall have another,
although he come a stranger to his house.
Many a one thinks himself wise,
if he is not questioned,
and can sit in a dry habit. 
People who stay in their comfort zone all of their lives and leave their beliefs unchallenged quite often think that they are wise (in the right) and that everyone else a fool (is in the wrong).
