“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Men at some time are masters of their fates. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Of all the wonders that I have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
(Act II, Scene 2)”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him;
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interred with their bones,
So let it be with Caesar ... The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answered it ...
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest,
(For Brutus is an honourable man;
So are they all; all honourable men)
Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral ...
He was my friend, faithful and just to me:
But Brutus says he was ambitious;
And Brutus is an honourable man….
He hath brought many captives home to Rome,
Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill:
Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept:
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious;
And Brutus is an honourable man.
You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious;
And, sure, he is an honourable man.
I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love him once, not without cause:
What cause withholds you then to mourn for him?
O judgement! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason…. Bear with me;
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause till it come back to me”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“There is a tide in the affairs of men
which, taken at the floud, leads on to fortune
ommitted, all the voyage of their lives
are bound in shallows and in miseries”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“His life was gentle; and the elements
So mixed in him, that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, THIS WAS A MAN!”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat;
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“There are no tricks in plain and simple faith.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once. It seems to me most strange that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“When beggars die, there are no comets seen; the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Death, a necessary end, will come when it will come”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“La culpa, no está en nuestras estrellas, sino en nosotros mismos, que consentimos en ser inferiores.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“But I am constant as the Northern Star,
Of whose true fixed and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Bid me run, and I will strive with things impossible.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“And since you know you cannot see yourself,
so well as by reflection, I, your glass,
will modestly discover to yourself,
that of yourself which you yet know not of.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“Let me have men about me that are fat... Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much: such men are dangerous.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“And Caesar's spirit, raging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

Soothsayer: Ay, Caesar; but not gone.”

“As I love the name of honour more than I fear death.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
“And it is very much lamented,...
That you have no such mirrors as will turn
Your hidden worthiness into your eye
That you might see your shadow.”
William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
