This is from Antoine Ferdinand Van Vlaenderen's Epigrammata Miscellanea, published in 1666:

Plura dabo, mea si placeant, sed si mea forte
Displiceant, sat erit displicuisse mihi.

displiceō, displicēre, displicuī: displease, dissatisfy
epilogus (epilogi, m.): winding up of a speech, epilogue

dō dare dedī datum: give
ego meī mihi mē: I, me
fors fortis f.: chance; adv. fortē: by chance
meus -a -um: my
placeō placēre placuī placitum: please
plūs plūris n.: a greater amount or number, more
satis/sat: enough, sufficient
sed: but
sī: if
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
