who is destined for downfall, suffering, or defeat. With this I depart- that, as I slew my
best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same
dagger for myself, when it shall please my country
to need my death. Not Evidence of Brutus' Tragic Flaw
Brutus. I am not gamesome: I do lack some part 115
Of that quick spirit that is in Antony.
Let me not hinder, Cassius, your desires;
I'll leave you.
Cassius. Brutus, I do observe you now of late:
I have not from your eyes that gentleness 120
And show of love as I was wont to have:
You bear too stubborn and too strange a hand
Over your friend that loves you. Monologue
Brutus. Cassius,
Be not deceived: if I have veil'd my look, 125
I turn the trouble of my countenance
Merely upon myself. Vexed I am
Of late with passions of some difference, Soliloquy
Cassius. I will do so: till then, think of the world.
Well, Brutus, thou art noble; yet, I see,
Thy honourable metal may be wrought 405
From that it is disposed: therefore it is meet
That noble minds keep ever with their likes; Soliloquy
Brutus. 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 crown'd:
How that might change his nature, there's the question. Dialogue
Cassius. Yet I fear him;
For in the ingrafted love he bears to Caesar— 805
Brutus. Alas, good Cassius, do not think of him:
If he love Caesar, all that he can do
Is to himself, take thought and die for Caesar:
And that were much he should; for he is given
To sports, to wildness and much company. 810 What Portia Says
Portia. I must go in. 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: Brutus hath a suit 1185
That Caesar will not grant. O, 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. Brutus' Diologue
Let us be sacrificers, but not butchers, Caius.
We all stand up against the spirit of Caesar; Dialogue
Brutus. Mark Antony, here, take you Caesar's body.
You shall not in your funeral speech blame us,
But speak all good you can devise of Caesar,
And say you do't by our permission; Brutus' Speech
—Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved 1555
Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and
die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men? Antonys' Speech
The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept: Antonys' Monologue
Antony. But yesterday the word of Caesar might
Have stood against the world; now lies he there. Brutus' Actions
Brutus. Farewell, good Strato.
[Runs on his sword]
Caesar, now be still:
I kill'd not thee with half so good a will.
[Dies] Results from Brutus
Cassius. Come down, behold no more.
Caesar, thou art revenged,
Even with the sword that kill'd thee. Dialogue Argument
Brutus. No man bears sorrow better. Portia is dead. Cassius. Ha! Portia! Cassius Talking about Suicide
Cassius. For ever, and for ever, farewell, Brutus!
If we do meet again, we'll smile indeed;
If not, 'tis true this parting was well made.
Brutus. Why, then, lead on. O, that a man might know
The end of this day's business ere it come!
But it sufficeth that the day will end,
And then the end is known. Come, ho! away! Dialogue with the Soldier
Lucilius. And I am Brutus,I Brutus, my countries friend knows me for Brutus
First Soldier. Yield, or thou diest. Brutus' Punishment
Caesar. Thy evil spirit, Brutus.
Brutus. Why comest thou?
Caesar. To tell thee thou shalt see me at Philippi.
Brutus. Well; then I shall see thee again?
Caesar. Ay, at Philippi. What Brutus says
Brutus. Farewell to you; and you; and you,
My heart doth joy that yet in all my life
I found no man but he was true to me.
I shall have glory by this losing day
More than Octavius and Mark Antony Octavious' words
Octavius. According to his virtue let us use him,
With all respect and rites of burial. The Verdict Sunny thought it was better to to be feared than loved (Tragic Flaw) A Bronx Tale He could never trust anybody (tragic flaw) His downfall was when he got shot by a guy who's father Sunny shot Sunny was wrong about how you could never trust anybody Sunnys' best friend Cologino, realized after he was dead that you cannot not trust anybody but still thought of him as a great man just like Antony thought of Brutus after he died Shebang Shebang
