Famous Julius Caesar Quotes
I am prepared to resort to anything, to submit to anything, for the sake of the commonwealth
I have lived long enough both in years and in accomplishments
I have always reckoned the dignity of the republic of first importance and preferable to life
It is not these well-fed long-haired men that I fear, but the pale and the hungry-looking
In war, events of importance are the result of trivial causes
Cowards die many times before their deaths
Yet if my name were liable to fear, I do not know the man I should avoid So soon as that spare Cassius
Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much. Such men are dangerous
Julius Caesar Important Quotes
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves
Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war
The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones
When beggars die, there are no comets seen; the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes
Bid me run, and I will strive with things impossible
I cannot tell what you and other men Think of this life, but, for my single self, I had as lief not be as live to be In awe of such a thing as I myself. I was born free as Caesar
With this I depart: that, as I slew my best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same dagger for myself when it shall please my country to need my death
Best Quotes From Caesar
I would rather be first in a little Iberian village than second in Rome
If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it
It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience
It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of life
Experience is the teacher of all things
Without training, they lacked knowledge. Without knowledge, they lacked confidence. Without confidence, they lacked victory
In the end, it is impossible not to become what others believe you are
Roman Emperor Sayings
As a rule, what is out of sight disturbs men’s minds more seriously than what they see
If I fail it is only because I have too much pride and ambition
All bad precedents begin as justifiable measures
Let us go where the gods have shown us the way and the injustice of our enemies calls us
It is the right of war for conquerors to treat those whom they have conquered according to their pleasure
The difference between a republic and an empire is the loyalty of one’s army
I love the name of honor, more than I fear death
The greatest enemy will hide in the last place you would ever look
Julius Caesar Had A Son With Cleopatra
Cleopatra and Caesar first met in 48 BC. when he came to Egypt to track down his rival, the Roman general Pompey.
Cleopatra was then at war with her younger brother and co-ruler Ptolemy XIII (according to Egyptian custom, the two formally ruled as husband and wife), and Caesar, who declared himself the executor of their late father’s will, ordered them to come to end the feud. Cleopatra was related to Macedonian kings. That is why i am suggesting you check our quotes by Alexander The Great for extra dose of inspiration.
Ptolemy then ordered his army to prevent Cleopatra from reaching the palace where Caesar was staying, but she smuggled herself in a laundry bag and thus managed to reach the palace. It is believed that Cleopatra and Caesar then began a love affair, and a year later she gave birth to a son, Ptolemy Caesar, who is considered to be Caesar’s son. The Egyptians considered him Caesarion, meaning little Caesar.
Shortly after Caesar’s assassination in 44 BC, Cleopatra’s brother and co-ruler Ptolemy XIV was killed. (The previous co-ruler with whom she was at war, Ptolemy XIII, died around 47 BC) Although it has never been proven, it is suspected that Cleopatra poisoned Ptolemy XIV in order to make Caesarion her co-ruler, which she did in the same year. The new ruler was called Ptolemy XV.
It is not known that Caesar had other children besides his son Caesarion and daughter Julia, who died in childbirth in 54 BC.
