LUSIUS- Sir March is wasted fifteen days Knock within.
BRUTUS- They are faction. O conspiracy, Sham'st thou to show thy dang'rous brow by night, When evils are most free? O, then, by day Where wilt thou find a cavern dark enough To mask thy monstrous visage? Seek none, conspiracy. hide it in smiles and affability; For if thou path, thy native semblance on, Not Erebus itself were dim enough to hide thee from. Enter the conspirators, Cassius, Casca, Decius, Cinna, Metellus, and Trebonius
BRUTUS- 'Tis good. Go to the gate; somebody knocks. (Luscius exits.)
BRUTUS- Since Cassius first did whet me against Caesar, I have not slept. Between the acting of a dreadful thing And the first motion, all the interim is Lake a phantasma or a hideous dream. The genius and the mortal instruments Are then in council, and the state of man, Like to a little kingdom, suffers then The nature of an insurrection. Enter Lucius
LUCIUS- No sir. Their hats are plucked about their ears, And half their faces buried in their cloaks, That by no means I may discover them By any make of favor.
BRUTUS- Lt 'em enter (Luscius exits)
BRUTUS- Do you know them.
Brutus- Is he alone.
LUCIUS- Sir 'tis your brother Cassius at the door Who doth desire to see you.
LUCIUS- No, sir there are more of them.
CASSIUS- Shall I entreat a word?
CASSIUS- This, Casca; this, Cinna; and this, Metellus Cimber.
CASSIUS- I think we are too bold upon your rest. Good morrow, Brutus. Do we trouble you?
Yes, every man of them; and no man here But honors you, and every one doth wish Which every noble roman bears of you. This is Trebonius.
CASSIUS- This, Decius Brutus.
BRUTUS- He is welcome to.
BRUTUS- They are all welcome. What watchful cares di interpose themselves Betwixt your eyes and night?
BRUTUS- He is welcome hither.
BRUTUS- I have been up this hour, awake all night. Know I these men that come along with you?
