    Random Quote
    "If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences. The memory is sometimes so retentive, so serviceable, so obedient; at others, so bewildered and so weak; and at others again, so tyrannic, so beyond control! We are, to be sure, a miracle every way; but our powers of recollecting and of forgetting do seem peculiarly past finding out."

    SCENE VII. Field of battle between the camps.

    Alarum. Drums and trumpets. Enter AGRIPPA and others
    Retire, we have engaged ourselves too far:
    Caesar himself has work, and our oppression
    Exceeds what we expected.


    Alarums. Enter MARK ANTONY and SCARUS wounded

    O my brave emperor, this is fought indeed!
    Had we done so at first, we had droven them home
    With clouts about their heads.

    Thou bleed'st apace.

    I had a wound here that was like a T,
    But now 'tis made an H.

    They do retire.

    We'll beat 'em into bench-holes: I have yet
    Room for six scotches more.

    Enter EROS

    They are beaten, sir, and our advantage serves
    For a fair victory.

    Let us score their backs,
    And snatch 'em up, as we take hares, behind:
    'Tis sport to maul a runner.

    I will reward thee
    Once for thy spritely comfort, and ten-fold
    For thy good valour. Come thee on.

    I'll halt after.
