The dint of pity; these are gracious drops. Soliloquy Example:
Act I, Scene 2

Thy honorable mettle may be wrought
From that is disposed; therefore it is meet
That noble minds keep ever with their likes
Monologue Example:
Act I, Scene 2
I had as lief not be, as live to be
in awe of such thing as myself.
I was born free as Caesar; so were you:
We both have fed as well, and we can both
Endure the winter's cold as well as he.
Act II, Scene 1
It must be by his death; and for my part,
I know no personal cause to spurn at him,
but for the general. He would be crowned.
How that might change his nature, there is the question. What Portia Says

And tempt the rheumy and unpurged air
to add into his sickness? No, my Brutus;
You have some sick offense within your mind,
Which by the right and virtue of my place. Dialouge

and the spirit of men there is no blood. Brutus Speech, Monologue example
