Illicitum non sperandum.

Do not hope for what is not allowed

LXXIX.

Spes simul & Nemesis nostris altaribus adsunt,
Scilicet ut speres non nisi quod liceat.

Hope and Retribution stand together beside the altar I have built, to ensure that you hope only for that which is allowed.

Rien esperer illicite.

LXXIX.

Selon l’antique fiction,
Nemesis cognoist de tout vice:
Et en faict la correction,
Par vraye voye de Justice.
A Esperance est doncq’ complice,
Pour donner doctrine visible,
Que d’esperer n’est pas propice:
Fors de chose que est loisible.
