Auxilium nunqum
deficiens.

Help never failing

Bina pericla unis effugi sedulus armis,
Cm premererque slo, cm premererque salo.
Incolumem ex acie clypeus me praestitit. idem
Navifragum apprensus littora adusque tulit.[1]

Double danger have I escaped by careful use of one set of arms, when I was hard-pressed on dry land and when I was in dire straits amidst the swelling billows. My shield brought me safe from the battle. The same shield, when I seized it, carried me, ship-wrecked, right to the shore.

Mutuum auxilium.

Mutual help

Loripedem sublatum humeris fert lumine captus:
Et socii haec oculis munera retribuit.
Quo caret alteruter, concors sic praestat uterque,
Mutuat hic oculos, mutuat ille pedes.[1]

A man deprived of sight carries on his shoulders one with deformed feet and offers this service in return for the use of his companion’s eyes. So each of them by mutual consent supplies what the other lacks. One borrows eyes, the other feet.
