"Now could I ..." Quote of William Shakespeare

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Now could I, Casca, name to thee a man Most like this dreadful night, That thunders, lightens, opens graves, and roars As doth the lion in the Capitol— A man no mightier than thyself or me In personal action, yet prodigious grown And fearful, as these strange eruptions are.

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Cassius, in Julius Caesar, act 1, sc. 3, l. 72-8. Referring to Julius Caesar; the audience may have thought of the lions kept in the Tower of London.
