William Shakespeare (1564–1616).  The Oxford Shakespeare.  1914.
 
Julius Cæsar
 
Act II. Scene III.
 
The Same.  A Street near the Capitol.
 
Enter ARTEMIDORUS, reading a paper.
  Art.  Cæsar, beware of Brutus; take heed of Cassius; come not near Casca; have an eye to Cinna; trust not Trebonius; mark well Metellus Cimber; Decius Brutus loves thee not; thou hast wronged Caius Ligarius. There is but one mind in all these men, and it is bent against Cæsar. If thou be’st not immortal, look about you: security gives way to conspiracy. The mighty gods defend thee! Thy lover,
ARTEMIDORUS.    
Here will I stand till Cæsar pass along,
And as a suitor will I give him this.        5
My heart laments that virtue cannot live
Out of the teeth of emulation.
If thou read this, O Cæsar! thou mayst live;
If not, the Fates with traitors do contrive.  [Exit.
