Nos Nequiores

Sallust, War with Catiline 51.42 (tr. J.C. Rolfe, rev. John T. Ramsey):
Surely there was greater merit and wisdom in those men of old, who from slight resources created such a mighty empire, than in us, who barely maintain what they gloriously brought into being.

profecto virtus atque sapientia maior illis fuit, qui ex parvis opibus tantum imperium fecere quam in nobis, qui ea bene parta vix retinemus.
