The Xanthians, suspecting my kindness, have made their country the grave of their despair; the Patareans, trusting themselves to me, enjoy in all points their former liberty; it is in your power to choose the judgment of the Patareans or the fortune of the Xanthians.
As quoted in "Marcus Brutus" in Lives by Plutarch, as translated by John Dryden
Your councils be long, your doings be slow, consider the end.Marcus Junius Brutus
Farewell, good Strato. — Caesar now be still: I kill'd not thee with half so good a will.Marcus Junius Brutus
