Cest olivier de nature sauvage,
Pour estre enté en ce bon olivier,
Ne doit pourtant s’eslever en courage:
Car de soy n’est venu s’y allier.
Ne vueille donc, Chrestien, tant t’oublier,
Que mespriser quiconque ne s’accorde
Encor à Christ, qui peut l’humilier,
Pour (comme toy) avoir misericorde.

NOLI ALTUM SAPERE

Do not be high-minded

xci.

Insertis oleae ramis, oleaster aberrat
Enasci fructus si putat inde suos.
Tu cave contemnas, cui nondum gratia Christi
Influxit: subitò nam quod es esse potest.

When its branches have been inserted into the olive tree, the wild olive goes astray if it thinks that for that reason the fruits that burst forth are its own. You be careful that you do not condemn someone whom Christ’s grace has not yet filled, for suddenly he could be what you are.
