Havamal Snippets 57: Like begets like

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):
57. Brand burns from brand
until it is burnt out;
fire is from fire quickened.
Man to man
becomes known by speech,
but a fool by his bashful silence.

Likeness begets likeness. If you want to get smarter, learn from a smart man. If you want to get tougher, then fight a tougher opponent. If you want to become more emasculated, then hang around emasculated men listening to Alanis Morrisette and Coldplay. Depression is socially contagious and Obesity are also socially contagious, so steer clear of the morbid and the fat.
