Through Thick and Thin

Every noble person or Roman must have a sturdy backbone. In the play Julius Caesar by Shakespeare, Caesar is one who can be the center of attention. Caesar can be known as a man that represents honor, faithfulness, and courage all in ways towards his fellow comrades. While Caesar is on his way home, many talk about how he has defeated Pompey and how they cannot wait to grant Caesar full power. His friend Antony mentions how he feels about Caesar and how no one should fear him. "Fear him not, Caesar, he's not/ dangerous, He is a noble Roman, and well given" (Shakespeare 55-57). Not only does Caesar symbolize honor but faithfulness as well. Caesar had his chance to lie in many situations, but instead of just turning his back, he went out tell the truth. When his wife wanted him to stay home, he then informs his friend to tell that he will not be arriving. In the place of a lie, he tells his friend a different type of answer. "The cause is in my will, I will not/ come: That is enough to satisfy the Senate" (Shakespeare 71-72).His honor and faith is true, but nothing is complete with the courage of a true warrior. As Caesar draws near death, he dies with bravery along his close friend Brutus. With strength in dyingfirst, his last words can strongly say he will be remembered in the mind of Brutus. "Et tu, Brute?" (Shakespeare 77). Even though nobility comes in all shapes and sizes, a true Roman stands out like a sore thumb. Through thick and thin no body will fear this honorable man and he walks faithfully with courage with his friends by his side.
