Illicitum non sperandum.

Do not hope for what is not allowed

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.

Rien esperer illicite.

Selon lantique fiction,
Nemesis congnoist 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.

Stant simul in altaribus binae Deae Spes
