Injure no one, either by word or deed.

EMBLEMA XXVII.

Assequitur, Nemesisque virům vestigia servat,
Continet & cubitum, duraque fraena manu.
Ne malč 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.

Notes:

1.  This epigram is based on Anthologia graeca 16.223-4.
