1

II,1,719

Here lies the east: doth not the day break here?

2

II,1,774

Shall no man else be touch'd but only Caesar?

3

II,1,826

Never fear that: if he be so resolved,
I can o'ersway him; for he loves to hear
That unicorns may be betray'd with trees,
And bears with glasses, elephants with holes,
Lions with toils and men with flatterers;
But when I tell him he hates flatterers,
He says he does, being then most flattered.
Let me work;
For I can give his humour the true bent,
And I will bring him to the Capitol.

4

II,2,1038

Caesar, all hail! good morrow, worthy Caesar:
I come to fetch you to the senate-house.

5

II,2,1050

Most mighty Caesar, let me know some cause,
Lest I be laugh'd at when I tell them so.

6

II,2,1064

This dream is all amiss interpreted;
It was a vision fair and fortunate:
Your statue spouting blood in many pipes,
In which so many smiling Romans bathed,
Signifies that from you great Rome shall suck
Reviving blood, and that great men shall press
For tinctures, stains, relics and cognizance.
This by Calpurnia's dream is signified.

7

II,2,1073

I have, when you have heard what I can say:
And know it now: the senate have concluded
To give this day a crown to mighty Caesar.
If you shall send them word you will not come,
Their minds may change. Besides, it were a mock
Apt to be render'd, for some one to say
'Break up the senate till another time,
When Caesar's wife shall meet with better dreams.'
If Caesar hide himself, shall they not whisper
'Lo, Caesar is afraid'?
Pardon me, Caesar; for my dear dear love
To our proceeding bids me tell you this;
And reason to my love is liable.

8

III,1,1199

Trebonius doth desire you to o'erread,
At your best leisure, this his humble suit.

9

III,1,1229

Where is Metellus Cimber? Let him go,
And presently prefer his suit to Caesar.

10

III,1,1281

Great Caesar,—

11

III,1,1295

And Cassius too.

12

III,1,1334

What, shall we forth?
