Ay, do you fear it? 80 Then must I think you would not have it so.
Bru. I would not, Cassius; yet I love him well. But wherefore do you hold me here so long? What is it that you would impart to me? If it be aught toward the general good, Set honor in one eye and death i' the other, And I will look on both indifferently: For let the gods so speed me as I love The name of honor more than I fear death.
Cas. I know that virtue to be in you, Brutus, 90 As well as I do know your outward favor. ° Well, honor is the subject of my story. I cannot tell what you and other men Think of this life, but, for my single self, I had as lief not be as live to be In awe of such a thing as I myself. I was born free as Cæsar; so were you: We both have fed as well, and we can both Endure the winter's cold as well as he: For once, upon a raw and gusty day, The troubled Tiber chafing with her shores, Cæsar said to me “Darest thou, Cassius, now Leap in with me into this angry flood, And swim to yonder point?” Upon the word,
Accoutred as I was, I plunged in
s, it cried “Give me some drink, Titinius,”.
So get the start of the majestic world
130 And bear the palmo alone. [Shout. Flourish.
Bru. Another general shout!
Cas. Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
140 But in ourselves, that we are underlings. Brutus, and Cæsar: what should be in that Cæsar? Why should that name be sounded more than yours? Write them together, yours is as fair a name; Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well; Weigh them, it is as heavy; conjure with 'em, Brutus will start a spirit as soon as Cæsar. Now, in the names of all the gods at once, Upon what meat doth this our Cæsar feed, That he is grown so great? Age, thou art shamed! 150 Rome, thou hast lost the breed of noble bloods! When went there by an age, since the great flood,o But it was famed with more than with one man? When could they say till now that talked of Rome
That her wide walls.encompassed but one man?
Bru. That you do love me, I am nothing jealouso; What you would work me to, I have some aimo: How I have thought of this and of these times, I shall recount hereafter; for this present, I would not, so with love I might entreat you, Be any further moved. What
have said I will consider; what you have to say I will with patience hear, and find a time Both meet to hear and answer such high things. 170 Till then, my noble friend, chew upon this: Brutus had rather be a villager Than to repute himself a son of Rome Under these hard conditions as this time Is like to lay upon us.
Cas. I am glad that my weak words Have struck but thus much show of fire from Brutus.
Bru. The games are done and Cæsar is returning. Cas. As they pass by, pluck Casca by the sleeve;
And he will, after his sour fashion, tell you 180
Re-enter CÆSAR and his Train
Cas. Casca will tell us what the matter is.
190 Ant. Cæsar?
Cos. Let me have men about me that are fat,
Ant. Fear him not, Cæsar; he's not dangerous;
Cæs. Would he were fatter! but I fear him not: Yet if my name were liable° to fear, I do not know the man I should avoid So soon as that spare Cassius. He reads much; He is a great observer, and he looks
