Havamal Snippets 60: Know the value, use of materials

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):
60. Of dry planks
and roof-shingles
a man knows the measure;
of the fire-wood
that may suffice,
both measure and time.

Know the value of materials, get to know them. Know what wood is good for kindling fires, know what wood is good for building lodges. Know what people are good for fun, know what people are good for partnerships.
