said of Catiline
Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC)
Original: (la) Satis eloquentiae, sapientiae parum.

„As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end.“

—  Sallust

As quoted in The Cyclopaedia of Practical Quotations: English and Latin (1894) edited by J. K. Hoyt and Anna L. Ward, p. 508
Kontext: As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.

—  Sallust

„All our power lies in both mind and body; we employ the mind to rule, the body rather to serve; the one we have in common with the Gods, the other with the brutes.“

—  Sallust

Original: (la) Sed nostra omnis vis in animo et corpore sita est; animi imperio, corporis servitio magis utimur; alterum nobis cum dis, alterum cum beluis commune est.
Quelle: Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC), Chapter I

„I myself, however, when a young man, was at first led by inclination, like most others, to engage in political affairs; but in that pursuit many circumstances were unfavorable to me; for, instead of modesty, temperance, and integrity, there prevailed shamelessness, corruption, and rapacity.“

—  Sallust

Original: (la) Sed ego adolescentulus initio sicuti plerique studio ad rem publicam latus sum, ibique mihi multa adversa fuere. Nam pro pudore, pro abstinentia, pro virtute, audacia, largitio, avaritia vigebant.
Quelle: Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC), Chapter III

„Ambition prompted many to become deceitful; to keep one thing concealed in the breast, and another ready on the tongue; to estimate friendships and enmities, not by their worth, but according to interest; and to carry rather a specious countenance than an honest heart.“

—  Sallust

Variant translation: It is the nature of ambition to make men liars and cheats, to hide the truth in their breasts, and show, like jugglers, another thing in their mouths, to cut all friendships and enmities to the measure of their own interest, and to make a good countenance without the help of good will.
Original: (la) Ambitio multos mortales falsos fieri subegit, aliud clausum in pectore, aliud in lingua promptum habere, amicitias inimicitiasque non ex re, sed ex commodo aestimare, magisque vultum quam ingenium bonum habere.
Quelle: Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC), Chapter X, section 5

„But when sloth has introduced itself in the place of industry, and covetousness and pride in that of moderation and equity, the condition of a state is altered together with its morals; and thus authority is always transferred from the less to the more deserving.“

—  Sallust

Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC)
Original: (la) Verum ubi pro labore desidia, pro continentia et aequitate libido atque superbia invasere, fortuna simul cum moribus immutatur. Ita imperium semper ad optimum quemque a minus bono transfertur. (II)

„But experience has shown that to be true which Appius says in his verses, that every man is the architect of his own fortune.“

—  Sallust

I.i.2
Epistulae ad Caesarem senem
Original: (la) Sed res docuit id verum esse, quod in carminibus Appius ait, fabrum esse suae quemque fortunae.

„For harmony makes small states great, while discord undermines the mightiest empires.“

—  Sallust, buch Bellum Iugurthinum

X.6
Bellum Iugurthinum
Original: (la) Nam concordia parvae res crescunt, discordia maxumae dilabuntur.

„For the fame of riches and beauty is fickle and frail, while virtue is eternally excellent.“

—  Sallust

For the glory of wealth and beauty is fleeting and perishable; that of the mind is illustrious and immortal.
Original: (la) Nam divitiarum et formae gloria fluxa atque fragilis est, virtus clara aeternaque habetur.
Quelle: Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC), Chapter I; Variant translation:

„And, indeed, if the intellectual ability of kings and magistrates were exerted to the same degree in peace as in war, human affairs would be more orderly and settled, and you would not see governments shifted from hand to hand, and things universally changed and confused. For dominion is easily secured by those qualities by which it was at first obtained. But when sloth has introduced itself in the place of industry, and covetousness and pride in that of moderation and equity, the fortune of a state is altered together with its morals; and thus authority is always transferred from the less to the more deserving.“

—  Sallust

Original: (la) Quod si regum atque imperatorum animi virtus in pace ita ut in bello valeret, aequabilius atque constantius sese res humanae haberent neque aliud alio ferri neque mutari ac misceri omnia cerneres. Nam imperium facile iis artibus retinetur, quibus initio partum est. Verum ubi pro labore desidia, pro continentia et aequitate lubido atque superbia invasere, fortuna simul cum moribus inmutatur. Ita imperium semper ad optumum quemque a minus bono transferetur.
Quelle: Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC), Chapter II, sections 3-6; translation by Rev. John Selby Watson

„He that will be angry for anything, will be angry for nothing.“

—  Sallust

Disputed

„Few men desire freedom, the greater part desire just masters.“

—  Sallust

Histories
Original: (la) Namque pauci libertatem, pars magna iustos dominos volunt.

„Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Etiam egestas wisi a erat. Morbi imperdiet, mauris ac auctor dictum.“
