That Brutus leads me on.Thunder.

Scene Two

[Cæsar's House]

Thunder and lightning. Enter Julius Cæsar in his night-gown.

Cæs. Nor heaven nor earth have been at peace to-night:

Serv. My lord!4

Cæs. Go bid the priests do present sacrifice,
And bring me their opinions of success.

Serv. I will, my lord.Exit.

Enter Calpurnia.

Cal. What mean you, Cæsar? Think you to walk forth?8
You shall not stir out of your house to-day.

Cæs. Cæsar shall forth: the things that threaten'd me

The face of Cæsar, they are vanished.12
