I would have had thee there and here again
5 Ere I can tell thee what thou shouldst do there.
O constancy, be strong upon my side,
Set a huge mountain tween my heart and tongue!
I have a mans mind but a womans might.
How hard it is for women to keep counsel!
10 Art thou here yet?

And so return to you, and nothing else?

For he went sickly forth. And take good note

Hark, boy! What noise is that?

To be so good to Caesar as to hear me,

SOOTHSAYER

None that I know will be; much that I fear may chance.
35 Good morrow to you. Here the street is narrow.
The throng that follows Caesar at the heels,
Of senators, of praetors, common suitors,
Will crowd a feeble man almost to death.
Ill get me to a place more void, and there
40 Speak to great Caesar as he comes along.

PORTIA

I must go in. (aside) Ay me, how weak a thing
The heart of woman is! O Brutus,
The heavens speed thee in thine enterprise!
Sure, the boy heard me. (to LUCIUS) Brutus hath a suit
That Caesar will not grant.Oh, I grow faint.
Run, Lucius, and commend me to my lord.
Say I am merry. Come to me again,
And bring me word what he doth say to thee.
