HODIE: Nonae Iuniae,
The Nones of June



Ut nulli nocuisse velis, imitare columbam;
serpentem, ut possit nemo nocere tibi.
If you want to hurt no one, be like the dove;
if you want that no one hurt you, be like the snake.




Magnus amor tuus est, si multum hoc tempore dones;
Si multum credas, est tua magna fides.
[English]




Maiori cede, sed non contemne minorem!
Yield to the greater, but scorn not the lesser!



Audentes deus ipse iuvat.
God himself favors the bold ones.
