Qui te plus solito demulcet carmine blando,
Te capere insidiis nititur ille suis.

credo - believe, trust
blandus - charming, flattering
adulator - sycophant, flatterer
qui - who
tu - you
plus - more
solitus - usual, customary
demulceo - soothe, charm

capio - catch, grab, seize
insidiae - ambush, trap
nitor - strive, try
ille - that, that one
suus - reflexive possessive
