Men at some time are masters of their fates.

    That could be moved to smile at anything.

So get the start of the majestic world
  And bear the palm alone.

Such men as he be never at heart's ease
  Whiles they behold a greater than themselves,
    And therefore are they very dangerous.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
  But in ourselves, that we are underlings.
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, ii)
        [Destiny : Self-determination]

This rudeness is a sauce to his good wit,
  Which gives men stomach to digest his words
    With good appetite.

'Tis meet
  That noble minds keep ever with their likes:
    For who so firm that cannot be seduced?
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, ii)
        [Proverbs]

What you have said
  I will consider; what you have to say
    I will with patience hear, and find a time
      Both meet to hear and answer such high things.
      - Julius Caesar (Brutus at I, ii)
        [Consideration : Patience]

Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
  Like a Colossus, and we petty men
    Walk under his huge legs and peep about
      To find ourselves dishonorable graves.
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, ii)
        [Greatness : Proverbs]

Would he were fatter! But I fear him not.
  Yet if my name were liable to fear,
    I do not know the man I should avoid
      So soon as that spare Cassius.
      - Julius Caesar (Caesar at I, ii)

Ye gods, it doth amaze me
  A man of such a feeble temper should
    So get the start of the majestic world

Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look.

It is the part of men to fear and tremble
  When the most mighty gods by tokens send
    Such dreadful heralds to astonish us.
      - Julius Caesar (Casca at I, iii) [Fear]

Nor stony tower, nor walls of beaten brass,
  Nor airless dungeon, nor strong links of iron,
    Can be retentive to the strength of spirit;
      But life, being weary of these worldly bars,
        Never lacks power to dismiss itself.
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, iii)
        [Life : Prison]

O Cicero,
  I have seen tempests when the scolding winds
    Have rived the knotty oaks, and I have seen
      Th' ambitious ocean swell and rage and foam
        To be exalted with the threat'ning clouds;
          But never till to-night, never till now,
            Did I go through a tempest dropping fire.
      - Julius Caesar (Casca at I, iii) [Storms]

O, sits high in all the people's hearts;
  And that which would appear offense in us,
    His countenance, like richest alchemy,
      Will change to virtue and to worthiness.
      - Julius Caesar (Casca at I, iii)
        [Character]

So every bondman in his own hand bears
  The power to cancel his captivity.
      - Julius Caesar (Casca at I, iii) [Liberty]

Those, that with haste will make a mighty fire,
  Begin it with weak straws.
      - Julius Caesar (Cassius at I, iii)
        [Proverbs]

And since the quarrel
  Will bear no color for the thing he is,
    Fashion it thus: that what he is, augmented,
      Would run to these and these extremities;
        And therefore think him as a serpent's egg,
          Which, hatched, would as his kind grow mischievous,
            And kill him in the shell.
      - Julius Caesar (Brutus at II, i) [Prudence]

Between the acting of a dreadful thing
  And the first motion, all the interim is
    Like a phantasma or a hideous dream.
      - Julius Caesar (Brutus at II, i) [Crime]

But 'tis a common proof
  That lowliness is young ambition's ladder,
    Whereto the climber upward turns his face;
      But when he once attains the upmost round,
        He then unto the ladder turns his back,
          Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees
            By which he did ascend.
      - Julius Caesar (Brutus at II, i) [Ambition]

But if these
  (As I am sure they do) bear fire enough
    To kindle cowards and to steel with valor
      The melting spirits of women, then, countrymen,
        What need we any spur but our own cause
          To prick us to redress?
      - Julius Caesar (Brutus at II, i)
        [Selfishness]

Fast asleep? IT is no matter.
  Enjoy the honey-heavy dew of slumber.
    Thou hast no figures nor no fantasies
      Which busy care draws in the brains of men;
        Therefore thou sleep'st so sound.
      - Julius Caesar (Brutus at II, i) [Sleep]

If he be so resolved,
  I can o'ersway him; for he loves to hear
    That unicorns may be betrayed with trees
      And bears with glasses, elephants with holes,
        Lions with toils, and men with flatterers,
          He says he does, being then most flattered.
      - Julius Caesar (Decius at II, i) [Flattery]
