V,6,3838

Tullus Aufidius. Sir, I cannot tell:
We must proceed as we do find the people.

Third Conspirator. The people will remain uncertain whilst
'Twixt you there's difference; but the fall of either
Makes the survivor heir of all.

V,6,3849

Tullus Aufidius. I know it;
And my pretext to strike at him admits
A good construction. I raised him, and I pawn'd
Mine honour for his truth: who being so heighten'd,
He water'd his new plants with dews of flattery,
Seducing so my friends; and, to this end,
He bow'd his nature, never known before
But to be rough, unswayable and free.

Third Conspirator. Sir, his stoutness
When he did stand for consul, which he lost
By lack of stooping,—

V,6,3883

Second Conspirator. And patient fools,
Whose children he hath slain, their base throats tear
With giving him glory.

Third Conspirator. Therefore, at your vantage,
Ere he express himself, or move the people
With what he would say, let him feel your sword,
Which we will second. When he lies along,
After your way his tale pronounced shall bury
His reasons with his body.
