Antony

To him again. Tell him he wears the rose

Read the Quote

Antony, to Ambassador
To him again. Tell him he wears the rose
Of youth upon him, from which the world should note
Something particular: his coin, ships, legions
May be a coward’s, whose ministers would prevail
Under the service of a child as soon
As i’ th’ command of Caesar. I dare him therefore
To lay his gay caparisons apart
And answer me declined,

Mark Antony
This is a slight unmeritable man,
Meet to be sent on errandsAlliteration

The threefold world divided, he should stand
One of the three to share it?

And took his voice who should be prick’d to die
In our black sentence and proscription.

Good morrow to thee. Welcome.

To business that we love we rise betime
And go to ‘t with delight.

Early though ‘t be, have on their riveted trim
And at the port expect you.   Shout. Trumpets flourish.
Enter Captains and Soldiers.

Eros, thou yet behold’st me?

Read the Quote

Antony
Eros, thou yet behold’st me?
Eros
Ay, noble lord.
Antony
Sometime we see a cloud that’s dragonish,
A vapor sometime like a bear or lion,
A towered citadel, a pendent rock,
A forkèd mountain, or blue promontory
With trees upon ‘t that nod unto the world
And mock our eyes with air.

Antony
Unarm, Eros. The long day’s task is done,
And we must sleep.—That thou depart’st hence safe
Does pay thy labor richly. Go.

Off, pluck off!

The sevenfold shield of Ajax cannot keep
The battery from my heart. O, cleave, my sides!

This was the noblest Roman of them all

Read the Quote

This was the noblest Roman of them all:
All the conspirators, save only he,
Did that they did in envy of great Caesar;
He, only in a general honest thought
And common good to all, made one of them.
His life was gentle, and the elements
So mix’d in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world,
