  • None, Brutus, none.
  • None, Brutus, none.
  • Brutus. Be patient till the last.
    Romans, countrymen, and lovers! hear me for my
    cause, and be silent, that you may hear: believe me
    for mine honour, and have respect to mine honour, that
    you may believe: censure me in your wisdom, and
    awake your senses, that you may the better judge.
    If there be any in this assembly, any dear friend of
    Caesar's, to him I say, that Brutus' love to Caesar
    was no less than his. If then that friend demand
    why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer:
    --Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved
    Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and
    die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live
    all free men? As Caesar loved me, I weep for him;
    as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was
    valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I
    slew him. There is tears for his love; joy for his
    fortune; honour for his valour; and death for his
    ambition. Who is here so base that would be a
    bondman? If any, speak; for him have I offended.
    Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If
    any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so
    vile that will not love his country? If any, speak;
    for him have I offended. I pause for a reply.

    All. None, Brutus, none.

2 III / 2
  • Live, Brutus! live, live!
  • Live, Brutus! live, live!
  • Brutus. Then none have I offended. I have done no more to
    Caesar than you shall do to Brutus. The question of
    his death is enrolled in the Capitol; his glory not
    extenuated, wherein he was worthy, nor his offences
    enforced, for which he suffered death.
    [Enter ANTONY and others, with CAESAR's body]
    Here comes his body, mourned by Mark Antony: who,
    though he had no hand in his death, shall receive
    the benefit of his dying, a place in the
    commonwealth; as which of you shall not? With this
    I depart,--that, as I slew my best lover for the
    good of Rome, I have the same dagger for myself,
    when it shall please my country to need my death.

    All. Live, Brutus! live, live!

3 III / 2
  • The will, the will! we will hear Caesar's will.
  • The will, the will! we will hear Caesar's will.
  • Fourth Citizen. We'll hear the will: read it, Mark Antony.

    All. The will, the will! we will hear Caesar's will.

4 III / 2
  • The will! the testament!
  • The will! the testament!
  • Fourth Citizen. They were traitors: honourable men!

    All. The will! the testament!

5 III / 2
  • Revenge! About! Seek! Burn! Fire! Kill! Slay!
    Let not a traitor live!
  • Revenge! About! Seek! Burn! Fire! Kill! Slay!
    Let not a traitor live!
  • Second Citizen. We will be revenged.

    All. Revenge! About! Seek! Burn! Fire! Kill! Slay!
    Let not a traitor live!

6 III / 2
  • We'll mutiny.
  • We'll mutiny.
  • ANTONY. Good friends, sweet friends, let me not stir you up
    To such a sudden flood of mutiny.
    They that have done this deed are honourable:
    What private griefs they have, alas, I know not,
    That made them do it: they are wise and honourable,
    And will, no doubt, with reasons answer you.
    I come not, friends, to steal away your hearts:
    I am no orator, as Brutus is;
    But, as you know me all, a plain blunt man,
    That love my friend; and that they know full well
    That gave me public leave to speak of him:
    For I have neither wit, nor words, nor worth,
    Action, nor utterance, nor the power of speech,
    To stir men's blood: I only speak right on;
    I tell you that which you yourselves do know;
    Show you sweet Caesar's wounds, poor poor dumb mouths,
    And bid them speak for me: but were I Brutus,
    And Brutus Antony, there were an Antony
    Would ruffle up your spirits and put a tongue
    In every wound of Caesar that should move
    The stones of Rome to rise and mutiny.

    All. We'll mutiny.

  • Peace, ho! Hear Antony. Most noble Antony!
  • Peace, ho! Hear Antony. Most noble Antony!
  • ANTONY. Yet hear me, countrymen; yet hear me speak.

    All. Peace, ho! Hear Antony. Most noble Antony!

8 III / 2
  • Most true. The will! Let's stay and hear the will.
  • Most true. The will! Let's stay and hear the will.
  • ANTONY. Why, friends, you go to do you know not what:
    Wherein hath Caesar thus deserved your loves?
    Alas, you know not: I must tell you then:
    You have forgot the will I told you of.

    All. Most true. The will! Let's stay and hear the will.

9 III / 2
  • Peace, ho!
  • Peace, ho!
  • ANTONY. Hear me with patience.

    All. Peace, ho!
