A Brother had this on a fantastic ring,but was off on the meaning,this is what I found Aude, Vide, Tace, takes its name from a Masonic slogan from some time back that translates from latin to “Know, Dare, Be Silent”.that mean’s a lot in the Masonic world,even more in the real world today. Aude, Vide, Tace means “to hear, to see, to be silent,” and is part of an old proverb that originally said, “Listen, see, and be silent if you wish to live in peace.“5 It has frequently been confused with similar mottos such as “To know, to dare, to keep silent.” In any case, Aude, Vide, Tace reminds a Freemason of his vows of secrecy, and thus makes an excellent inscription for a ring.

Just to clarify Avdi Vide Tace translates as Hear See Be silent and its Masonic significance comes from the fact that it was adopted as the motto of the United Grand Lodge of England and appears on the Arms of Grand Lodge
