—  Sallust

„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
Bellum Catilinae (c. 44 BC), 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. Chapter II, sections 3-6; translation by Rev. John Selby Watson

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

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

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

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

—  Sallust

„Ambition breaks the ties of blood, and forgets the obligations of gratitude.“

—  Sallust
Misattributed, The earliest attributions of this yet found are to it being a saying of William Scott, 1st Baron Stowell, in History of the Anti-Corn Law League (1853), by Archibald Prentice, p. 54; around 1876 it began to began to be cited to W. Scott, and then around 1880 sometimes to Walter Scott, but without citations of source, including a variant: "Selfish ambition breaks the ties of blood, and forgets the obligations of gratitude" in a publication of 1907. It seems to only recently to have begun to be attributed to Sallust, on the internet.

„Necessity makes even the timid brave.“
