Context

“But indeed, sir, we make holiday to see
CAESAR and to rejoice in his triumph. MARULLUS. Wherefore rejoice? What conquest brings he home?
What tributaries follow him to Rome To grace in captive bonds his chariot wheels? You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things! O you hard hearts, you cruel men of Rome, Knew you not Pompey? Many a time and oft
Have you climb'd up to walls and battlements, To towers and windows, yea, to chimney tops, Your infants in your arms, and there have sat” source
