Pagina 183 - O, now you weep; and, I perceive, you feel The dint of pity : these are gracious drops. Kind souls, what ! weep you, when you but behold Our Caesar's vesture wounded ? Look you here, Here is himself, marr'd, as you see, with traitors.

Pagina 177 - ... for expert men can execute and perhaps judge of particulars one by one, but the general counsels, and the plots and marshalling of affairs, come best from those that are learned.
Pagina 178 - Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.

Pagina 177 - Read not to contradict and confute nor to believe and take for granted nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider.

Pagina 184 - For I have neither wit, nor words, nor worth, Action, nor utterance, nor the power of speech, To stir men's blood: I only speak right on; I tell you that which you yourselves do know; Show you sweet Caesar's wounds, poor poor dumb mouths, And bid them speak for me: but were I Brutus, And Brutus Antony, there were an Antony Would ruffle up your spirits and put a tongue In every wound of Caesar that should move The stones of Rome to rise and mutiny.
Pagina 170 - Halls, Exchange, Hospitals, Monuments, and ornaments, leaping after a prodigious manner from house to house and street to street, at great distances one from the other; for the heat with a long set of fair and warm weather had even ignited the air and prepared the materials to conceive the fire, which devoured after an incredible manner houses, furniture, and everything.
