Mark Antony Speech

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 answered it.
Here under leave of Brutus and the rest
(For 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 honorable 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 witholds 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
