But recollect, I pray you, how that clever man convicted me of being an
accomplice in the business. When Caesar was slain, says he, Marcus Brutus
immediately lifted up on high his bloody dagger, and called on Cicero by name;
and congratulated him on liberty being recovered. Why on man above all men?
Because I knew of it beforehand? Consider rather whether this was not his reason
for calling on me, that, when he had performed an action very like those which I
myself had done, he called me above all men to witness that he had been an
imitator of my exploits.
