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.

Nicht unbillichs zu hoffen.


Hoffnung, und die gottin der Rhach,
Auff einn altar zusam gestelt,
Leren das man nit hoffe nach
Dan was zimlich, und Got gefelt:
Verhoffst on recht guet oder gelt,
Versich dich gwiser rew und straff,
Sey hye oder in jhener welt,
Wie unn taeglich predigt der pfaff.
