"Cattle die,
kinsmen die
you yourself die;
I know one thing
which never dies:
the judgment of a dead man's life."

Men ask for much help. Often they are beyond the reach of brother-help. Yet you are not. Praise this.

Here is the help of Edda:

1. Hearing I ask | from the holy races,
From Heimdall's sons, | both high and low;
Thou wilt, Valfather, | that well I relate
Old tales I remember | of men long ago.

2. I remember yet | the giants of yore,
Who gave me bread | in the days gone by;
Nine worlds I knew, | the nine in the tree
With mighty roots | beneath the mold.

Remember these and more. These are the lays of the gods and you read the wise womans prophesy.

3. Of old was the age | when Ymir lived;
Sea nor cool waves | nor sand there were;
Earth had not been, | nor heaven above,
But a yawning gap, | and grass nowhere.

4. Then Bur's sons lifted | the level land,
Mithgarth the mighty | there they made;
The sun from the south | warmed the stones of earth,
And green was the ground | with growing leeks.

5. The sun, the sister | of the moon, from the south
Her right hand cast | over heaven's rim;
No knowledge she had | where her home should be,
The moon knew not | what might was his,
The stars knew not | where their stations were.

There are more, you should google them I guess... Odin was a pretty central figure, so they have a lot of verses about him.

P.S: The first image in your thread. It looks really familiar. Who made it? I can't seem to remember.

If you're curious about Oðin's place in Norse mythology you'd best be served by studying the Poetic and Prose Eddas, two separate volumes that expound upon the history and deeds of the Æsir and Vanir. You may find interest in The Hávamál, the Saying of Old Hár. These are Oðin's words of wisdom to those who would listen. Maybe they'll be of help for you. If you're looking for specific wisdom or insight though, you'll need to be more specific.
