Havamal Snippets 32: Conflict is an inevitable fact of life

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):
32. Many men
are mutually well-disposed,
yet at table will torment each other.
That strife will ever be;
guest will guest irritate. 
Conflict is an inevitable fact of life. If you want to open the door then the door will resist your efforts to open it. Yet you must persist until you succeed. One side is victor the other is loser.
