Either there is a civil strife in heaven, Or else the world, too saucy with the gods, Incenses them to send destruction.
CASCA A common slave--you know him well by sight-- Held up his left hand, which did flame and burn Like twenty torches join'd, and yet his hand, Not sensible of fire, remain'd unscorch'd. Besides--I ha' not since put up my sword-- Against the Capitol I met a lion, Who glared upon me, and went surly by, Without annoying me: And yesterday the bird of night did sit Even at noon-day upon the market-place, Hooting and shrieking.
When these prodigies Do so conjointly meet, let not men say 'These are their reasons; they are natural;' For, I believe, they are portentous things Unto the climate that they point upon. But men may construe things after their fashion, Clean from the purpose of the things themselves.
Come Caesar to the Capitol to-morrow? I cannot, by the progress of the stars, Give guess how near to day.
Lucius, I say! I would it were my fault to sleep so soundly. When, Lucius, when?
Thrice hath Calpurnia in her sleep cried out, 'Help, ho! Enter a Servant. Decius Brutus loves thee not: There is but one mind in all these men, and it is bent against Caesar.
If thou beest not immortal, look about you: The mighty gods defend thee! My heart laments that virtue cannot live Out of the teeth of emulation. If thou read this, O Caesar, thou mayst live; If not, the Fates with traitors do contrive.
Why dost thou stay? O constancy, be strong upon my side, Set a huge mountain 'tween my heart and tongue! I have a man's mind, but a woman's might. How hard it is for women to keep counsel! Art thou here yet?
Run to the Capitol, and nothing else? And so return to you, and nothing else? Hark, boy! Enter the Soothsayer. Before the Capitol; the Senate sitting above.
Soothsayer Ay, Caesar; but not gone. Come to the Capitol. Cassius, go you into the other street, And part the numbers. Those that will hear me speak, let 'em stay here; Those that will follow Cassius, go with him; And public reasons shall be rendered Of Caesar's death. First Citizen I will hear Brutus speak. Second Citizen I will hear Cassius; and compare their reasons, When severally we hear them rendered.
I have no will to wander forth of doors, Yet something leads me forth. Enter Citizens. A house in Rome. But, Lepidus, go you to Caesar's house; Fetch the will hither, and we shall determine How to cut off some charge in legacies. Your master, Pindarus, In his own change, or by ill officers, Hath given me some worthy cause to wish Things done, undone: A word, Lucilius; How he received you, let me be resolved.
There are no tricks in plain and simple faith; But hollow men, like horses hot at hand, Make gallant show and promise of their mettle; But when they should endure the bloody spur, They fall their crests, and, like deceitful jades, Sink in the trial.
