Default ¡Ayúdame con esta foto, por favor!

Hola!
Tengo un problema con la lectura de la inscripción en el tatuaje en esta foto:



Yo he leído la así:

On ne doit
nettre son espoia
quien soi - niemi


¿Qué significa esto? ¿Puede alguien ayudarme, por favor?
Gracias de antemano.

It's almost certainly French - probably a famous saying/proverb.

My reading of the picture
On ne (or me?) soit ???ttre sou espoir qu'en soi-même

It is ??? his hope in oneself (from a translator)

Over to the French foreros

I think it's a quote from the character Virgil in Dante's inferno:

"on ne doit mettre son espoir qu'en soit-meme"

which I think roughly translates to: "one should not place all faith in ones-self"
