Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master After Antony declares his desire to fight against Caesar and engage body and soul in the battle, Enobarbus, his most loyal supporter, finds himself alone. He then says that anger makes fear disappear, which makes people brave, but also exposes them to the danger of behaving unreasonably. Enobarbus then decides to leave Antony's service, because according to him, reason is the only weapon capable of giving victory.
