Aliorum Dolores

I found this poem in the collection Philosophia Patrum edited by Julius Wegeler.

Aliorum Dolores
Ut mala prudenter tua portes et sapienter,
Inspice maiores aliorum saepe dolores.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There are two words in this poem that are not on the DCC list:

inspiciō, inspiciere: examine, inspect
prūdenter: carefully, cautiously

alius -a -um: other, another; alias: at another time
dolor -ōris m.: pain, grief
et: and
māior -ius: greater, older; maiōres -um: ancestors
malus -a -um: bad, evil; male: (adv.) badly
portō -āre: carry a load
saepe: often
sapiens -ntis.: wise man
tuus -a -um: your
ut, uti: as (+ indic.); so that, with the result that (+ subj.)
