Not Caesar’s valour hath o’erthrown Antony,
But Antony’s hath triumph’d on itself.
So it should be, that none but Antony
Should conquer Antony; but woe ’tis so!
I am dying, Egypt, dying; only
I here importune death awhile, until
Of many thousand kisses the poor last
I lay up thy lips.
-Antony and Cleopatra, Act 4 scene 15
by William Shakespeare
Marcus Antonius committed suicide on August 1st 30BC, so here is my small homage to him. Hail to you Marcus Antonius, great warrior; what a fascinating figure you are.
