Anyone heard this one?
Where is it from?
"Are you not mov'd, when all the sway of the earth shakes like a thing unfirm, O cicero, I have seen tempest, whent hewind have riv'd the knotty oaks; and I have seen the ambitous ocean swell and rage and foam. To be exalted with the threat'ning clouds...."[/quote]

Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act I, scene 3:
Quote:
CASCA:
Are not you moved, when all the sway of earth
Shakes like a thing unfirm? O Cicero,
I have seen tempests, when the scolding winds
Have rived the knotty oaks, and I have seen
The ambitious ocean swell and rage and foam,
To be exalted with the threatening clouds:
But never till to-night, never till now,
Did I go through a tempest dropping fire.
Either there is a civil strife in heaven,
Or else the world, too saucy with the gods,
Incenses them to send destruction.
