Parem delinquentis & suasoris
culpam esse.

The one who urges wrongdoing is as guilty as the one who does the wrong

Praeconem lituo perflantem classica victrix
Captivum in tetro carcere turma tenet.
Queis ille excusat, quòd nec sit strenuus armis,
Ullius aut saevo laeserit ense latus.
Huic illi, quin ipse magis timidissime peccas,
Qui clangore alios aeris in arma cies.[1]

The victorious troop holds captive in a foul dungeon a herald, who sounds military commands on his trumpet. To them he makes his excuses - he is no strong fighting man and has wounded no one’s side with a cruel sword. They reply: You abject coward, you are in fact more guilty, for you with the sound of your trumpet stir up others to fight.

Le conseil pugny comme
le deffaillant.

Selon que guerre en sa tempeste
Rend prospere ou dure saison,
Lon print ladversaire trompette
Quon mist pour mourir en prison:
Il sexcusoit sur la raison
Quil na despee faict oultrage:
Tu es (fist on) pire poison,
Car tu rends aux couars courage.

Notes:

1.  This is a version of Aesop, Fables 325.
