HODIENonae Decembres

Linque coax ranis,
cras corvis, vanaque vanis.

Leaving croaking "coax" to the frogs,
cawing "cras" to the crows, frivolity to the frivolous.

Aptus amicus adest unus tibi; parce secundum
   Quaerere; vix aeque tertius aptus erit.

Fuge, late, tace.
Run away, hide, keep silent.

Lumen caeleste sequamur.
Let us follow the heavenly light.
