Julius Caesar: Act II, Scene 3

Julius Caesar
Act II, Scene 3

Rome. A street near the capitol.

  1. Enter Artemidorus reading a paper.


1 - 13
  1. Caesar, beware of Brutus; take heed of Cassius; come not
  2. near Casca; have an eye to Cinna; trust not Trebonius; mark
  3. well Metellus Cimber; Decius Brutus loves thee not; thou
  4. hast wrong’d Caius Ligarius. There is but one mind in all
  5. these men, and it is bent against Caesar. If thou beest not
  6. immortal, look about you; security gives way to conspiracy.
  7. The mighty gods defend thee! Thy lover, Artemidorus.”
  8. Here will I stand till Caesar pass along,
  9. And as a suitor will I give him this.
  10. My heart laments that virtue cannot live
  11. Out of the teeth of emulation.
  12. If thou read this, O Caesar, thou mayest live;
  13. If not, the Fates with traitors do contrive.
  1. Exit.
