Dicta Chilonis Lacedaemonii

Nosce te ipsum. Γνῶθι σαυτόν.
Ne cui invideas mortalia. Μὴ φθόνει θνητά.
Temperantiam exerce. Ἐγκράτειαν ἄσκει.
Turpia fuge. Αἰσχρὰ φεῦγε.
Tempori parce. Χρόνου φείδου.
Juste rem para. Δικαίω κτῶ.
Sapientia utere. Πλήθει ἄρεσκε.
Multitudini place. Σοφίᾳ χρῶ.
Oderis calumnias. Ἤθει δοκίμαζε.
Ne quid suspiceris. Ὑφορῶ μηδέν.
Moribus probatio esto. Μίσει διαβολάς.
Ne fueris onerosus. Μὴ ᾖς ἐπαχθής.

From Opuscula graecorum veterum sententiosa et moralia, p. 150-1
