In molles.

On the soft.

Hinc properate, caput digito qui scalpitis uno,[1]
Molles atque pigros nulla trophaea manent.

Be off with you, you who scratch your head with one finger, There are no prizes [lit. no trophies remain] for softies and lazybones.

Notes:

1.  Juvenal, Satire, 9.133, ‘qui digito scalpunt uno caput’. The action was considered effeminate.
