Marc Antony:
I come not, friends, to steal away your hearts. I am no orator, as *Brutus* is; but, as you know me all, a plain blunt man that loved my friend, and that they know full well that gave me public leave to speak of him. For I have neither wit, nor words, nor worth, action, nor utterance, nor the power of speech to stir men's blood. I only speak right on. I tell you that which you yourselves do know, show you sweet Caesar's wounds, poor, poor dumb mouths, and bid them speak for me. But were I Brutus, and Brutus Antony, *there* were an Antony would ruffle up your *spirits*, and put a *tongue* in every wound of Caesar that should move the stones of Rome to rise and mutiny!

Transcript:
I come not, friends,
to steal away your hearts.
I am no orator, as Brutus is,
but, as you know me all,
a plain blunt man
that loved my friend,
and that they know full well
that gave me public leave to speak of him.
For I have neither wit, nor words,
nor worth, action, nor utterance,
nor the power of speech
to stir men's blood.
I only speak right on. I tell you that
which you yourselves do know,
show you sweet Caesar's wounds,
poor, poor dumb mouths,
and bid them speak for me.
But were I Brutus, and Brutus Antony,
there were an Antony
would ruffle up your spirits,
and put a tongue
in every wound of Caesar
that should move the stones of Rome
to rise and mutiny.
We'll mutiny!
We'll burn the house of Brutus!
- Yet hear me, countrymen!
- We'll mutiny!
Yet hear me speak!
Why, friends, you go
to do you know not what.
Wherein hath Caesar
thus deserved your love?
Alas, you know not. I must tell you then.
You have forgot the will I told you of.
The will!
Here is the will, and under Caesar's seal.
To every Roman citizen he gives,
to every several man,
75 drachmas!
Moreover, he hath left you all his walks,
his private arbors and new-planted
orchards on this side Tiber.
He hath left them you
and to your heirs forever.
Common pleasures,
to walk abroad and recreate yourselves.
Here was a Caesar.
When comes such another?
Never, never!
Go fetch fire!
Come away, away!
