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.

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.
