1) “Beware the ides of March” (1.2.20). The speaker is the Soothsayer and the audience includes Caesar, Brutus, Cassius, Antony, Calphurnia, and Casca. As Caesar prepares to watch Antony race, the soothsayer approaches Caesar and warns him of the ides of March. This quote carries a large amount of significance because Caesar believes that he is invincible and chooses to go out on the 15 th of March and on that day Caesar dies. 2) “Men at some time are masters of their fates” (1.2.140). The speaker is Cassius and Brutus is the one he is speaking to. Cassius attempts to convince Brutus to join the rebellion against Caesar, telling him that Caesar is no better of a man than Brutus. This quote is fairly significant because it persuades Brutus into believing that Caesar brought his own fate upon himself and it also convinces Brutus into turning against Caesar. 3) “Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much; such men are dangerous” (1.2.194-195). Caesar is speaking so only Antony can hear him. After they all return from the games Caesar notices Cassius and pulls Antony aside and tells Antony that he thinks Cassius should not be trusted. This quote is important because Antony is informed of the Cassius and the possible danger he may bring toward Caesar. 4) “For Antony is but a limb of Caesar” (2.1.167). Brutus is speaking to the other conspirators that include: Cassius, Casca, Decius, Cinna, Metellus, and Trebonius. The conspirators are planning the murder of Caesar and Cassius brings up the idea of murdering Antony as well to prevent Antony from giving them any possible problems in the future. Brutus however rejects the idea because he believes that Antony is nothing more than a pawn of Caesar and killing Antony would only show envy so Brutus decides to keep him alive. The quote is very significant because Brutus convinces his allies to keep Antony alive , which in the end results to their own downfalls.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
