Quod Tibi, Hoc Aliis

Quod Tibi, Hoc Aliis
Quod tibi non faceres, aliis fecisse caveto;
Vulnera nec facias quae nequis ipse pati.

Source: Josephus Perez (1627-1694), Hortulus Carminum. Meter: Elegiac. Note the future imperative: caveto.

nequeō, nequīre: be unable, cannot

alius -a -um: other, another; alias: at another time
caveō cavēre cāvī cautum: be on guard, beware
faciō facere fēcī factum: do, make
ipse ipsa ipsum: him- her- itself
neque nec: and not, nor; neque . . . neque, neither . . . nor
nōn: not
patior patī passus sum: permit, endure
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
tū tuī tibi tē: you (sing.)
vulnus -eris n.: wound
