By drinking from mimir's fountain, he became the wisest of gods and men.
At last he determined to see mimir, and take a drink from his well.
mimir, the owner of this spring, is full of wisdom because he drinks of its waters.
By drinking at mimir's sacred fountain, he became the wisest of gods and men.
mimir was a giant in size, but he was not one of the fierce giant enemies of the gods, for he was kind, and wiser than the wisest.
No less a person than the Swimmer, Oriander, who is in turn the son of mimir.
Under it is the fountain mimir, spring of wisdom, from which Odin drinks daily.
Far down in Giant-land, where the roots began to shoot, was an ancient well, guarded by the good giant mimir (Memory).
Its three main roots were watered by three fountains, and near one of them sat the wise giant mimir, of whom we shall hear later.
But under the root that stretches out towards the Frost-giants there is mimir's well, in which wisdom and wit lie hidden.
