Quoy qu’en tout temps l’aumosne soit utile
Aux souffreteux, point ne faut de trompette
A l’annoncer, comme dit l’Evangile.
La charité de coeur vraye & parfaicte
Ne veut tesmoins de son oeuvre bien faicte.
Car il suffit que Dieu bien apperçoit,
Que l’indigent de ton bien a disette.
Le publiant son salaire reçoit.

NE TIBIIS CANATUR

Do not sound the pipes (cf Matth 6:2)

xc.

Adjutare inopes rectum: sed turpe superbis
Laudibus id totum spargere per populum.
Testibus haud opus est animo sanoque pioque:
Et satis hunc unus si videt omniscius.

It is right to help with succour: but it is bad to spread it right through the people with proud praise. For a sane and faithful mind no witness is needed if the one who is omniscient sees him.
