    What you lend is lost; when you ask for it back, you may find a
    friend made an enemy by your kindness. If you begin to press him
    further, you have the choice of two things--either to lose your
    loan or lose your friend.
    [Lat., Si quis mutuum quid dederit, sit pro proprio perditum;
    Cum repetas, inimicum amicum beneficio invenis tuo.
    Si mage exigere cupias, duarum rerum exoritur optio;
    Vel illud, quod credideris perdas, vel illum amicum, amiseris.]
