Julius Caesar

Battle of Phillipi

There is a tide in the affairs of men,

Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;Omitted, all the voyage of their life

Is bound in shallows and in miseries.

On such a full sea are we now afloat, And we must take the current when it serves Or lose our ventures. What does Brutus mean by these words?

In essence, Brutus is telling Cassius that if they're going to fight.... they need to do it. He is warning Cassius that to delay would result in massive death and injury. Antony and Octavius' forces are growing, while their own are decreasing daily.
