palace
 
Enter DEMETRIUS and PHILOPHILO. Nay, but this dotage of our general'sO'erflows the measure. Those his goodly eyes,That o'er the files and musters of the warHave glow'd like plated Mars, now bend, now turn,The office and devotion of their viewUpon a tawny front. His captain's heart,Which in the scuffles of great fights hath burstThe buckles on his breast, reneges all temper,And is become the bellows and the fanTo cool a gipsy's lust.Flourish. Enter ANTONY, CLEOPATRA, her LADIES, the train,with eunuchs fanning herLook where they come!Take but good note, and you shall see in himThe triple pillar of the world transform'dInto a strumpet's fool. Behold and see.CLEOPATRA. If it be love indeed, tell me how much.ANTONY. There's beggary in the love that can be reckon'd.CLEOPATRA. I'll set a bourn how far to be belov'd.ANTONY. Then must thou needs find out new heaven, new earth.Enter a MESSENGERMESSENGER. News, my good lord, from Rome.ANTONY. Grates me the sum.CLEOPATRA. Nay, hear them, Antony.Fulvia perchance is angry; or who knowsIf the scarce-bearded Caesar have not sentHis pow'rful mandate to you: 'Do this or this;Take in that kingdom and enfranchise that;Perform't, or else we damn thee.'ANTONY. How, my love?CLEOPATRA. Perchance? Nay, and most like,You must not stay here longer; your dismissionIs come from Caesar; therefore hear it, Antony.Where's Fulvia's process? Caesar's I would say? Both?Call in the messengers. As I am Egypt's Queen,Thou blushest, Antony, and that blood of thine
