Nec verbo nec facto quenquam

Injure no-one, either by word or deed.


Assequitur, Nemesisque virum vestigia servat,
Continet & cubitum duraque frena 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.

Niemand verletzen, mit wort
noch that.


Das ist die gottin Nemesis,
Die get unnß auff dem fueßtrit nach,
Helt yren arm, tregt ein gebiß,
Lernt das wier nit seyen so gach,
Zu thuen aynichem menschen schmach,
Es sey mit wortten, oder that:
Dan gar bald kumbt gewise rhach,
Und puest sich alle ubelthat.
