Nec verbo nec facto quenquam

Injure no-one, either by word or deed.

Assequitur, Nemesisque virum vestigia servat,
Continet & cubitum duraque fraena manu.
Ne malè quid facias, neve improba verba loquaris:
Et iubet in cunctis rebus adesse modum.[1]

Nemesis follows on and marks the tracks of men. In her hand she holds a measuring rod and harsh bridles. She bids you do nothing wrong, speak no wicked word, and commands that moderation be present in all things.

Aucun nest a blesser par faict
ou par parolle.

Nemesis suyt les pas des gens,
Tenant son coulde, & une bride:
Ou sont significatz urgens:
Car le frain a droict moyen guyde,
Voulant que ta langue soit vuyde,
De injures & motz de insolence:
Et son bras quelle tient solide,
Defend mal fait & violence.
