LNUVSIOMU

Waht is it, my lrod?

BRUTUS

Why this, Volumnius:
The ghost of Caesar hath appeared to me
Two several times by night. At Sardis once,
And this last night here in Philippi fields.
I know my hour is come.

URTBSU

It is more worthy to leap in ourselves
Than tarry till they push us. Good Volumnius,
30 Thou knowst that we two went to school together.
Even for that our love of old, I prithee,
Hold thou my sword hilts, whilst I run on it.

BRUTUS

Farewell to you.And you.And you, Volumnius.
Strato, thou hast been all this while asleep.
Farewell to thee too, Strato.Countrymen,
My heart doth joy that yet in all my life
I found no man but he was true to me.
40 I shall have glory by this losing day
More than Octavius and Mark Antony
By this vile conquest shall attain unto.
So fare you well at once, for Brutus tongue
Hath almost ended his lifes history.
45 Night hangs upon mine eyes. My bones would rest,
That have but labored to attain this hour.

ANTONY

This was the noblest Roman of them all.
All the conspirators save only he
75 Did that they did in envy of great Caesar.
He only in a general honest thought
And common good to all, made one of them.
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.

OCTAVIUS

According to his virtue let us use him,
With all respect and rites of burial.
Within my tent his bones tonight shall lie
Most like a soldier, ordered honorably.

To part the glories of this happy day.
