Antony Quotes

Quote #1 (Act 3 Scene 2)

Antony does nothing but praise Caesar, eventually leading the crowd to mutiny.

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend me your ears; I come to bury Caesar not to praise him.

Quote #2 (Act 3 Scene 2)

Antony refers to Brutus' stab wound and further turns the crowd against Brutus.

This was the most unkindest cut of all.

Quote #3 (Act 3 Scene 2)

Antony speaks this line at his funeral in Act 3 Scene 2. He has asked Brutus's permission to make the speech, and Brutus foolishly allows him the privilege.

He was my friend, faithful and just to me.
But Brutus says he was ambitious,
And Brutus is an honourable man.
. . .
When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept.
. . .
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,
And Brutus is an honourable man.
. . .
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition?
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,
And sure he is an honourable man.

Octavius and Antony together

Quote #1

Octavius: He's a tried and valiant soldier. Antony: So is my horse, Octavius, and for that / I do appoint him store of provender.

In Act IV begins with a look at Antony's more cunning side as he compares the third member of the triumvirate to a horse, no longer useful.

Descriptive Paragraph

Antony and Octavius connected in an unusual way. Octavius is Caesar’s son, and appointed successor. Antony is that older brother but yet cunning senator that tries to control Octavius’s movements to better himself, and his standing. Yet even though he is trying to control his movements he helps decide that it’d be a good idea to go after Cassius and Brutus.
