Remember to preserve your reputation
Once you have lost it you will be a nobody.
Not only vice, but what seems to be a vice, these also if you are wise, these also, maiden, you have to shun.
Do not think it enough that you yourself know you have done right
Also then, while the heart is unblemished, the reputation is gone.
If a damaged nut loses any part of its shell,
There will always be, whatever you may do, a hole.
If to their misery the spotless reputation is lost to girls
The honour of their virginity is bound to suffer.
Even if you wanted to prop up the ruin of a reputation
The charm that previously existed will not return.
