    "There are people who strictly deprive themselves of each and every eatable, drinkable, and smokable which has in any way acquired a shady reputation. They pay this price for health. And health is all they get for it. How strange it is. It is like paying out your whole fortune for a cow that has gone dry."

    Sentinels at their post
    First Soldier
    If we be not relieved within this hour,
    We must return to the court of guard: the night
    Is shiny; and they say we shall embattle
    By the second hour i' the morn.

    Second Soldier
    This last day was
    A shrewd one to's.


    O, bear me witness, night,--

    Third Soldier
    What man is this?

    Second Soldier
    Stand close, and list him.

    Be witness to me, O thou blessed moon,
    When men revolted shall upon record
    Bear hateful memory, poor Enobarbus did
    Before thy face repent!

    First Soldier

    Third Soldier
    Hark further.

    O sovereign mistress of true melancholy,
    The poisonous damp of night disponge upon me,
    That life, a very rebel to my will,
    May hang no longer on me: throw my heart
    Against the flint and hardness of my fault:
    Which, being dried with grief, will break to powder,
    And finish all foul thoughts. O Antony,
    Nobler than my revolt is infamous,
    Forgive me in thine own particular;
    But let the world rank me in register
    A master-leaver and a fugitive:
    O Antony! O Antony!


    Second Soldier
    Let's speak To him.

    First Soldier
    Let's hear him, for the things he speaks
    May concern Caesar.

    Third Soldier
    Let's do so. But he sleeps.

    First Soldier
    Swoons rather; for so bad a prayer as his
    Was never yet for sleep.

    Second Soldier
    Go we to him.

    Third Soldier
    Awake, sir, awake; speak to us.

    Second Soldier
    Hear you, sir?

    First Soldier
    The hand of death hath raught him.

    Drums afar off

    Hark! the drums
    Demurely wake the sleepers. Let us bear him
    To the court of guard; he is of note: our hour
    Is fully out.

    Third Soldier
    Come on, then;
    He may recover yet.

    Exeunt with the body
