NUMBER:1160
AUTHOR:William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
QUOTATION:This was the noblest Roman of them all.
All the conspirators, save only he,
Did that they did in envy of Caesar;
He only, in a general honest thought
And common good to all, made one of them.
His life was gentle, and the elements
So mix’d in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, “This was a man!”
ATTRIBUTION:WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Julius Caesar, act V, scene v, lines 68–75. Antony is speaking.
SUBJECTS:Man
WORKS:William Shakespeare Collection
