Ex bello pax.

Peace succeeding to war

En galea, intrepidus quam miles gesserat: & quae
Saepius hostili sparsa cruore fuit.
Parta pace apibus tenuis concessit in usum
Alveoli: atque favos grataque mella gerit.
Arma procul iaceant: fas sit tunc sumere bellum:
Quando aliter pacis non potes arte frui.[1]

See here a helmet which a fearless soldier previously wore and which was often spattered with enemy blood. After peace was won, it retired to be used as a narrow hive for bees; it holds honey-combs and nice honey. - Let weapons lie far off; let it be right to embark on war only when you cannot in any other way enjoy the art of peace.

Notes:

1. áCf. Anthologia graeca, 6.236, where bees nest in what were once the beaks (projections at the prow) of war-galleys.

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.

LXXIX.

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.
