JULIUS CÆSAR, ACT II., SCENE 1.

Butus. It must be by his death : and, for my part,
I know no personal cause to spurn at him,
But for the general. He would be crown'd :-
How that might chauge his nature, there's the question.
It is the bright day that brings forth the adder;
And that craves wary walking. Crown him ?-

That ;

And then, I grant, we put a sting in him,
That at his will he may do danger with.
The abuse of greatness is, when it disjoins
Remorse from power : and, to speak truth of Cæsar,
I have not known when his affections sway'd
More than his reason. But 'tis a common proof,
That lowliness is young ambition's ladder,
Whereto the climber-upwards turns his facc :
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: So Cæsar may;
Then, lest he may, prevent. And, since the quarrel
Will bear no colour 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, hatch'd, would, as his kind grow mischievous ;
And kill him in the shell.

IDEM GRÆCE REDDITUM.

Γένοιτ' αν εκ θανόντος, ούκ άλλως, τάδε.
εγώ μεν ούν νιν ουκ άν οίδα λακτίσας
αυτός δι' αυτόν μη το κοινόν ωφελών.
στέφανον μεν άν δέξαιτ' έχων δε, τους τρόπους
οίους μεθαρμόσαιτ' άν, ουκ εν ευκρίτω.
λευκόν γαρ ήμαρ τους όφεις τίκτειν φιλεί,
θέσθαι τοτ' ήδη χρή μαλ' ευλαβώς πόδα.
Και δη δέδεκται στέφανον· αλλ' εστεμμένος
κέντροισιν ευθύς εξοπλίζεται, δι ών
δεινόν τι ποιείν ήν θέλη, δυνήσεται.
αδίκως κρατειν είωθεν, ένθα του κρατείν
αποσταση των νέμεσις υστεροφθόρος.
εν γούν άμεμπτος Καίσαρ ου γαρ οίδ' όθ' οι
ο θυμός ορθού πλείον ίσχυσεν λόγου.
δηλόν γε μην ως αντί κλίμακος πάρα
τιμής νέω μαργώντι το σμικρά φρονείν,
προς την τρέπει μεν όμμ' έπαμβατήρ έτ' ών,
ήδη δ' επαμβάς εις ενηλάτων άκρων
επιστρέφει τα νώτ', ές ουρανόν βλέπων,
κάχει παρ ουδέν τας κάτωθε κειμένας
βάσεις δί ώνπερ ώδ' έχει μετάρσιος:
τοιούτος ούν γένοιτο κάν Καίσαρ συ δε,
μη και γένηται δεινός, εμποδών γενού
έπει δε πρόφασίς έστιν ούτ' έγκλημά τι
όντος τοιούτου τούδε, συμβαλείν έριν,
ούτω το πράγμα θησόμεσθ'. ανήρ όδε,
ών οιός έστιν, ήν τι προσλάβη πλέον,
ή ταύτ' επ' έσχατ' ή 'π' εκείνα βήσεται:
τον δ' ούν νομίζων ωον ερπετού, δάκνειν
πεφυκός είτ' αν λεπίδ' απορρήξη κενήν,
έτ' όντ' έσωθεν λεπίδος ουκ αποκτενείς ;
