Multo Tempore Disce

Ne ad scribendum cito prosilias et levi ducaris insania. Multo tempore disce, quod doceas.

St. Jerome, Letter CXXV to Rusticus (p. 428 in the Loeb Classics edition).

Roughly translated by me:

Do not swiftly rush into writing so as to be led by trifling folly. Learn for many years what you are to teach.
