1 Logos
1.1 "I was born as free as Caesar; so were you: We have both been fed as well, and we can both endure the winter's cold as well as he."(I.ii.97-99)
1.1.1 This is logos because it is a quote that was said by Cassius, it was directed toward Brutus. This made Brutus think about how he is just as good as Caesar, if not better. Cassius was trying to persuade Brutus to join their cause and lead them.
1.2 "You know it is the feast of the Lupercal."(I.ii.67)
1.2.1 This is logos because this statement is based off of a fact that it really is the Lupercal. Marullus tries to this statement to give the plebians a reason for not working,
1.3 Then he offered it to him again; then he put it by again; but to my thinking, he was very loath to lay his fingers off of it. And then he offered it a third time. He put it the third time by; and still refused i, the rabblement hooted, and clapped their chopt hands, and threw up their sweaty nightcaps, and uttered such a deal of stinking breath because Caesar refused the crown.(I.ii. 239-245)
1.3.1 This is logos because it is a quote that was said by Casca in the story. This causes Cassius to try and think about why he would have done this even though he knew that he wanted to take the crown.
2 Ethos
2.1 "See Brutus at his house; three parts of him Is ours already, and the man entire Upon the next encounter yields him ours."(I.iii.154-156)
2.1.1 This is ethos because it is a quote that is said by Cassius. His mission was to gain Brutus' trust, and he almost has his full trust now. He made it seem appealing to Brutus to join the conspirators.
2.2 "Will make him fly an ordinary pitch, Who else would soar above the view of men And keep us all in servile fearfulness."(I.i.73-75)
2.2.1 This is ethos because Flavius is trying to appeal his trust by concealing, but at the same time expressing his feelings.
2.3 "Beware the ides of March."(I.ii.18)
2.3.1 This is ethos because this statement is said by a soothsayer, and the prefix "sooth" also means truth. Also, the statement reveals Caesar's future, and Caesar must trust that the soothsayer knows what he is talking about.
3 Pathos
3.1 "The fault dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings."(I.ii.140-141)
3.1.1 This is an example of pathos because in this quote said by Cassius, he uses emotional examples by saying that the fault is in themselves and not fate.
3.2 "Would he were fatter! But I fear him not. Yet if my name were liable to fear, I do not know the man I should avoid So as that spares Cassius. He reads much, He is a great observer and he looks Quite through the deeds of men. He loves no plays."(198-203)
3.2.1 This is an example of pathos because the person saying this quote describes this person using vivid descriptions. He also triggers an emotional response.
3.3 "A man no mightier than thyself, or me, In personal action, yet prodigious grown And fearful, as these strange eruptions are."(I.iii.76-78)
3.3.1 This is an example of pathos because he again uses a lot of vivid adjectives to describe oneself.
