SALLUST (CAIUS SALLUSTIUS CRISPUS)
Roman historian
(86 BC - 35 BC)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 2

Enough words, little wisdom.
  [Lat., Satis eloquentiae sapientiae parum.]
      - Catilina (V) [Words]

The Romans assisted their allies and friends, and acquired friendships by giving rather than receiving kindness.
  [Lat., Sociis atque amicis auxilia portabant Romani, magisque dandis quam accipiundis beneficiis amicitias parabant.]
      - Catilina (VI) [Kindness]

But assuredly Fortune rules in all things; she raised to eminence or buries in oblivion everything from caprice rather than from well-regulated principle.
  [Lat., Sed profecto Fortuna in omni re dominatur; ea res cunctas ex lubidine magis, quam ex vero, celebrat, obscuratque.]
      - Catilina (VIII) [Fortune]

To desire the same things and to reject the same things, constitutes true friendship.
  [Lat., Idem velle et idem nolle ea demum firma amicitia est.]
      - Catilina (XX),
        from Cataline's Oration to his Associates
        [Friendship]

He preferred to be good, rather than to seen so.
  [Lat., Esse quam videri bonus malebat.]
      - Catlina (LIV) [Goodness]

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.
  [Lat., Corporis et fortunae bonorum ut initium finis est. Omnia orta occidunt, et orta senescunt.]
      - Jugurtha (II) [Change]

No one has become immortal by sloth; nor has any parent prayed that his children should live forever; but rather that they should lead an honorable and upright life.
  [Lat., Ignavia nemo immortalis factus: neque quisquam parens liberis, uti aeterni forent, optavit; magis, uti boni honestique vitam exigerent.]
      - Jugurtha (LXXXV) [Life]

The glory of ancestors sheds a light around posterity; it allows neither good nor bad qualities to remain in obscurity.
  [Lat., Majorum gloria posteris lumen est, neque bona neque mala in occulto patitur.]
      - Jugurtha (LXXXV) [Ancestry]

By union the smallest states thrive, by discord the greatest are destroyed.
  [Lat., Concordia res parvae crescunt, discordia maximae dilabantur.]
      - Jugurtha (X) [Unity]
