  • Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.

  • I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.

  • The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.

  • So let it be with Caesar.

  • The noble Brutus Hath told you Caesar was ambitious.

  • If it were so, it was a grievous fault, and grievously hath Caesar answer'd it.

  • Here, under leave of Brutus and the restfor Brutus is an honorable man; so are they all, all honorable men.

  • Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral.

  • He was my friend, faithful and just to me:

  • But Brutus says he was ambitious, and Brutus is an honorable man.

  • He hath brought many captives home to Rome whose ransoms did the general coffers fill.

  • Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?

  • When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept;

  • Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

  • Yet, Brutus says he was ambitious, and Brutus is an honourable man.

  • You all did see that on the Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse.

  • Was this ambition?

  • Yet, Brutus says he was ambitious, and, sure, he is an honorable man.

  • I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke, but here I am to speak what I do know.

  • You all did love him once, not without cause.

  • What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him?

  • O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts, and men have lost their reason.

  • Bear with me;

  • My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,

  • and I must pause till it come back to me.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.
