  • Gods and goddesses,
    All the whole synod of them!
  • DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS. Naught, naught all, naught! I can behold no longer:
    The Antoniad, the Egyptian admiral,
    With all their sixty, fly and turn the rudder:
    To see't mine eyes are blasted.

    SCARUS. Gods and goddesses,
    All the whole synod of them!

  • The greater cantle of the world is lost
    With very ignorance; we have kiss'd away
    Kingdoms and provinces.
  • DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS. What's thy passion!

    SCARUS. The greater cantle of the world is lost
    With very ignorance; we have kiss'd away
    Kingdoms and provinces.

  • On our side like the token'd pestilence,
    Where death is sure. Yon ribaudred nag of Egypt,--
    Whom leprosy o'ertake!--i' the midst o' the fight,
    When vantage like a pair of twins appear'd,
    Both as the same, or rather ours the elder,
    The breese upon her, like a cow in June,
    Hoists sails and flies.
  • DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS. How appears the fight?

    SCARUS. On our side like the token'd pestilence,
    Where death is sure. Yon ribaudred nag of Egypt,--
    Whom leprosy o'ertake!--i' the midst o' the fight,
    When vantage like a pair of twins appear'd,
    Both as the same, or rather ours the elder,
    The breese upon her, like a cow in June,
    Hoists sails and flies.

  • She once being loof'd,
    The noble ruin of her magic, Antony,
    Claps on his sea-wing, and, like a doting mallard,
    Leaving the fight in height, flies after her:
    I never saw an action of such shame;
    Experience, manhood, honour, ne'er before
    Did violate so itself.
  • DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS. That I beheld:
    Mine eyes did sicken at the sight, and could not
    Endure a further view.

    SCARUS. She once being loof'd,
    The noble ruin of her magic, Antony,
    Claps on his sea-wing, and, like a doting mallard,
    Leaving the fight in height, flies after her:
    I never saw an action of such shame;
    Experience, manhood, honour, ne'er before
    Did violate so itself.

  • 'Tis easy to't; and there I will attend
    What further comes.
  • 'Tis easy to't; and there I will attend
    What further comes.
  • CANIDIUS. Toward Peloponnesus are they fled.

    SCARUS. 'Tis easy to't; and there I will attend
    What further comes.

  • O my brave emperor, this is fought indeed!
    Had we done so at first, we had droven them home
    With clouts about their heads.
  • AGRIPPA. Retire, we have engaged ourselves too far:
    Caesar himself has work, and our oppression
    Exceeds what we expected.

    SCARUS. O my brave emperor, this is fought indeed!
    Had we done so at first, we had droven them home
    With clouts about their heads.

  • I had a wound here that was like a T,
    But now 'tis made an H.
  • I had a wound here that was like a T,
    But now 'tis made an H.
  • ANTONY. Thou bleed'st apace.

    SCARUS. I had a wound here that was like a T,
    But now 'tis made an H.

  • We'll beat 'em into bench-holes: I have yet
    Room for six scotches more.
  • We'll beat 'em into bench-holes: I have yet
    Room for six scotches more.
  • ANTONY. They do retire.

    SCARUS. We'll beat 'em into bench-holes: I have yet
    Room for six scotches more.

  • Let us score their backs,
    And snatch 'em up, as we take hares, behind:
    'Tis sport to maul a runner.
  • EROS. They are beaten, sir, and our advantage serves
    For a fair victory.

    SCARUS. Let us score their backs,
    And snatch 'em up, as we take hares, behind:
    'Tis sport to maul a runner.

10 IV / 7
  • I'll halt after.
  • I'll halt after.
  • ANTONY. I will reward thee
    Once for thy spritely comfort, and ten-fold
    For thy good valour. Come thee on.

    SCARUS. I'll halt after.

11 IV / 10
  • For both, my lord.
  • For both, my lord.
  • ANTONY. Their preparation is to-day by sea;
    We please them not by land.

    SCARUS. For both, my lord.

  • Swallows have built
    In Cleopatra's sails their nests: the augurers
    Say they know not, they cannot tell; look grimly,
    And dare not speak their knowledge. Antony
    Is valiant, and dejected; and, by starts,
    His fretted fortunes give him hope, and fear,
    Of what he has, and has not.
  • ANTONY. Yet they are not join'd: where yond pine
    does stand,
    I shall discover all: I'll bring thee word
    Straight, how 'tis like to go.

    SCARUS. Swallows have built
    In Cleopatra's sails their nests: the augurers
    Say they know not, they cannot tell; look grimly,
    And dare not speak their knowledge. Antony
    Is valiant, and dejected; and, by starts,
    His fretted fortunes give him hope, and fear,
    Of what he has, and has not.
