Some Smatch of Honor

Reading Juilus Caesar this morning, it struck me as a play entirely about the world of trouble people bring upon themselves, and upon those about them, when they pay more attention to their own thoughts than they do to the world.

I had never noticed it before, but Marcus Brutus is wrong about nearly everything the material world ever presents to him -- he's too busy thinking, to see anything.
