He who has seen and suffered much,
And knows the ways of the world,
Who has traveled', can tell what spirit
Governs the men he meets,

Drink your mead, but in moderation,
Talk sense or be silent:
No man is called discourteous who goes
To bed at an early hour

A gluttonous man who guzzles away
Brings sorrow on himself:
At the table of the wise he is taunted often,
Mocked for his bloated belly,

The herd knows its homing time,
And leaves the grazing ground:
But the glutton never knows how much
His belly is able to hold,

An ill tempered, unhappy man
Ridicules all he hears,
Makes fun of others, refusing always
To see the faults in himself

Foolish is he who frets at night,
And lies awake to worry'
A weary man when morning comes,
He finds all as bad as before,

The fool thinks that those who laugh
At him are all his friends,
Unaware when he sits with wiser men
How ill they speak of him.

The fool thinks that those who laugh
At him are all his friends:
When he comes to the Thing and calls for support,
Few spokesmen he finds

The fool who fancies he is full of wisdom
While he sits by his hearth at home.
Quickly finds when questioned by others.
That he knows nothing at all.

The ignorant booby had best be silent
When he moves among other men,
No one will know what a nit-wit he is
Until he begins to talk;
No one knows less what a nit-wit he is
Than the man who talks too much.

To ask well, to answer rightly,
Are the marks of a wise man:
Men must speak of men's deeds,
What happens may not be hidden.

I believe that most people in Norway are Odinist and on the Oslo Courthouse there is a mural of Thor or Thors Hammer!

Great thread I don't believe there have been many other threads if any regarding Odinism!

Wise is he not who is never silent,
Mouthing meaningless words:
A glib tongue that goes on chattering
Sings to its own harm.

Thanks Nightbird. I don't know about most people in Norway being Odinist. I know for a fact that my ex-wife wasn't and she was born and raised in Trondheim. Nor did I know about the mural in the Oslo courthouse. If I holiday there I'll be sure to put that on my itinerary.
Like I said earlier, my hopes are to dispel some of the negative misconseptions that there are on Odinism.
Anyways I'm glad that you like it.

A man among friends should not mock another:
Many believe the man
Who is not questioned to know much
And so he escapes their scorn.

If someone would help me to learn about Asatru & the way of life. My Hubby to be has made the choice to become & believe in the Asatru way. I'm about to get married & I believe in muilt. things. He has made it very clear that we will raise our children this way & I need to learn more about it before I commit to something.

The wise guest has his way of dealing
With those who taunt him at table:
He smiles through the meal,
not seeming to hear
The twaddle talked by his foes

The fastest friends may fall out
When they sit at the banquet-board:
It is, and shall be, a shameful thing
When guest quarrels with guest,

An early meal a man should take
Before he visits friends,
Lest, when he gets there,
he go hungry,
Afraid to ask for food.

To a false friend the footpath winds
Though his house be on the highway.
To a sure friend there is a short cut,
Though he live a long way off.

Try going to www.odinist.com (I'm mrsdragon there). Its a very informative website and they are excellent at answering questions and separating myth from fact!

I can also try to help answer some questions as well (or at least ask my hubby and he will give me answers I don't know).

The tactful guest will take his leave Early,
not linger long:
He starts to stink who outstays his welcome
In a hall that is not his own.

A small hut of one's own is better,
A man is his master at home:
A couple of goats and a corded roof
Still are better than begging.
