tetrastichon.

Ut semel accensus facilè servabitur ignis,
Quem semel extinctum vix reparare datur:
Sic claram facilè est famam, nomenque tueri,
Eius at extincti non reparatur honos.

As fire, once lit, is easily preserved, but once extinct, is almost impossible to restore: just so, it is easy to preserve one’s bright fame and good name, but, if it goes out, it is never regained.

quatrain.

Feu alumé facilement s’enflamme,
Esteint, il est de mauvais alumer:
A grand travail recouvre loz & fame,
Qui la laissé folement consumer.
