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

This had appeared as an anonymous maxim as early as 1844; the first attribution to Sallust yet found is in The Voice of Wisdom, A Treasury of Moral Truths from the Best Authors (1883) edited by J. E.

„Think like a man of action, and act like a man of thought.“

—  Sallust
Henri Bergson, as quoted in The Forbes Scrapbook of Thoughts on the Business of Life (1950), p. 442; this only seems to have become attributed to Sallust in the early 21st century.

„Necessity makes even the timid brave.“

—  Sallust
Chapter LVII <!-- , as quoted in A Book of Quotations, Proverbs and Household Words (1907) edited by William Gurney Benham, p. 830 -->

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

—  Sallust
Chapter I; Variant translation: For the glory of wealth and beauty is fleeting and perishable; that of the mind is illustrious and immortal.

„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
Chapter X, section 5 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.
