Fili in mansuetudine serva animam tuam et da illi honorem secundum meritum tuum.

My son, keep thy soul in meekness, and give it honor according to its desert.

Eccli. 10:31

(Stability in solitude.)

Sta in testamento tuo et in illo colloquere, et in opere mandatorum tuorum veterasce. Ne manseris in operibus peccatorum, confide autem in Deo et in mane in loco tuo.

Be steadfast in thy covenant, and be conversant therein, and grow old in the work of thy commandments. Abide not in the works of sinners, but trust in God and stay in thy place.

Eccli. 11:21-22.
