Damnum Alterius


244     -     245     -     246


Damnum Alterius
Alterius damno nemo ditescere debet;
Non aliis facito quod fieri ipse vetas.


Source: Anton Moker (1540-1605), Decalogus Metricus.  Meter: Elegiac. Note the future imperative: facito.

alter altera alterum: other of two
damnum -ī n.: damage, injury
dēbeō dēbēre dēbuī dēbitum: owe, be obliged
faciō facere fēcī factum: do, make
fīō fierī factus sum: become
ipse ipsa ipsum: him- her- itself
nēmo: no one (gen. nullius, dat. nulli, abl. nullo or nulla > nullus -a -um)
nōn: not
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
vetō -āre vetuī vetītum: forbid
