  • We'll hear the will: read it, Mark Antony.
  • We'll hear the will: read it, Mark Antony.
  • ANTONY. But yesterday the word of Caesar might
    Have stood against the world; now lies he there.
    And none so poor to do him reverence.
    O masters, if I were disposed to stir
    Your hearts and minds to mutiny and rage,
    I should do Brutus wrong, and Cassius wrong,
    Who, you all know, are honourable men:
    I will not do them wrong; I rather choose
    To wrong the dead, to wrong myself and you,
    Than I will wrong such honourable men.
    But here's a parchment with the seal of Caesar;
    I found it in his closet, 'tis his will:
    Let but the commons hear this testament--
    Which, pardon me, I do not mean to read--
    And they would go and kiss dead Caesar's wounds
    And dip their napkins in his sacred blood,
    Yea, beg a hair of him for memory,
    And, dying, mention it within their wills,
    Bequeathing it as a rich legacy
    Unto their issue.

    Fourth Citizen. We'll hear the will: read it, Mark Antony.

7 III / 2
  • Read the will; we'll hear it, Antony;

  • Read the will; we'll hear it, Antony;
    You shall read us the will, Caesar's will.
  • ANTONY. Have patience, gentle friends, I must not read it;
    It is not meet you know how Caesar loved you.
    You are not wood, you are not stones, but men;
    And, being men, bearing the will of Caesar,
    It will inflame you, it will make you mad:
    'Tis good you know not that you are his heirs;
    For, if you should, O, what would come of it!

    Fourth Citizen. Read the will; we'll hear it, Antony;
    You shall read us the will, Caesar's will.

8 III / 2
  • They were traitors: honourable men!
  • They were traitors: honourable men!
  • ANTONY. Will you be patient? will you stay awhile?

    Whose daggers have stabb'd Caesar; I do fear it.

    Fourth Citizen. They were traitors: honourable men!
