From the whole world of rationals beside!

He is dead, Cæsar;
Not by a public minister of justice;
Nor by a hired knife; but that self hand,
Which writ his honour in the acts it did.

To save our life leap all into the grave?

This is that rest this vain world lends,
To end in death that all things ends.

Live till to-morrow, will have pass’d away.
