We see this quote in the play “Julius Caesar” written by William Shakespeare in the dialog between Brutus and Cassius who plan the assassination of Caesar (Act I, Scene II). Brutus is unsure if they can be equal to Caesar. He hears people applauding to Caesar and they discourage him. But Cassius answers with another speech ensuring his partner that there is nothing special in Caesar, he is not chosen. Cassius tells that Caesar isn’t flawless, he also can be sick and has his weak points. It is hard work and good strategy that can earn them fame and fortune and make them as great and loved by the people as Caesar is now.
