Prudentiae est altiora animo moliri honesto,
Stultitiae est inusitatos laudare domi pulveres.
Quanti enim studiosiores rerum honestarum sumus
eo impensius imaginem Dei in nobis illustramus.

Abi bono omine, votis amicorum plenissimus, reducem te dum Deus nobis sistet, acceptet Patria haec te in pace, cujus tuque servabis pacem.

It is wise to set to great things with honest soul / and it is foolish to praise the ancient dust of your homeland. / The more we aspire to virtuous things, / the more the image of God shines in us.

Go with good fortune, accompanied by prayers of your friends, and may we see you again until God gives us to live; may you be accepted by peace in your fatherland, whose peace you will also serve.
