quenquam ledendum.

Injure no-one, either by word or deed.

Assequitur, Nemesisque virūm vestigia servat,
Continet & cubitun [=cubitum] , duraque frena manu.
Ne male 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.


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