Illicitum non sperandum.

Do not hope for what is not allowed

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.

Selon lantique fiction,
Nemesis cognoist de tout vice:
Et en faict la correction,
Par vraye voye de Justice.
A Esperance est donc complice,
Pour donner doctrine visible,
Que desperer nest pas propice:
Fors de chose que est loisible.

Illicitum non sperandum.

Do not hope for what is not allowed

Emblema xlvi.

Spes simul & Nemesis nostris altaribus adsunt,
Scilicet ut speres non nisi quod liceat.[1]

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

IDem cum superiore, Spem cum Nemesi eadem
ara positas, ut admoneamur nihil nobis optan-
dum aut sperandum, nisi quod liceat, qudque no-
stra exspectatione, nostrque captu dignum sit:
quia Nemesis vindex omnis arrogantiae & fastus
prop sit temeritatem ultura impotentem.

Ne fault rien esperer qui ne soit loisible.

ESperance & Nemese ont un autel commun,
Jointes ensemblement, pour monstrer chacun,
Qu’il ne fault esperer que ce qui est loisible
Digne de nous aussi, & qui nous est possible.

C’Est un argument de mesme que le pre-
cedent, d’Esperance & Nemese collo-
quees sur un mesme autel: afin que soyons
advertis qu’il ne nous fault rien desirer ou
esperer, sinon qu’il soit loisible, & digne de
nostre portee & suffisance: car la Nemese,
qui punit toute arrogance & orgeuil, est
tout au-pres, qui releve la trop desbordee
temerit.

Notes:

1. Cf. [FALc048].
