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

—  Sallust
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.

„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.
