Palm

Julius Caesar, [1.2.121-131]. Cassius. “‘Tis true, this god did shake./ His coward lips did from their color fly,/ And that same eye whose bend doth awe the world/ Ay, and that tongue of his that bade the Romans/ Mark him and write his speeches in their books,/ ‘Alas,’ it cried, ‘Give me some drink, Titinius,’/ As a sick girl. Ye gods, it doth amaze me/ A man of such a feeble temper should/ So get the start of the majestic world/ And bear the palm alone.”
