Havamal Snippets 51: Good things last bad things don't

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):
51. Hotter than fire
love for five days burns
between false friends;
but is quenched
when the sixth day comes,
and friendship is all impaired.

Good things last, bad things don't. Whether in friendships, relationships, businesses, empires or whatever, the good is eternal, longer lasting, closer to the almighty, to God.
