Cytaty Sallustiusz


„Plenty of eloquence, not enough wisdom“

—  Sallust
Context: Plenty of eloquence, not enough wisdom (said of Catiline)

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

—  Sallust
Context: 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. As quoted in The Cyclopaedia of Practical Quotations: English and Latin (1894) edited by J. K. Hoyt and Anna L. Ward, p. 508

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

—  Sallust
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.

„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.


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

—  Sallust
IV.69.18 Variant translation: Only a few prefer liberty, the majority seek nothing more than fair masters.
