Fructify (v.)

Fructify means bear fruit, become fruitful. Fructify is cited in two of Williams Shakespeare’s play Love’s Labour’s Lost (LLL.IV.ii.29) Nathaniel says to Holofernes, of Dull: “We thankful should be for those parts that do fructify in us more than he.”

Holofernes, Sir Nathaniel, Dull, Costard, and Jacquenetta. Love’s Labour’s Lost. Act IV, Scene II. Folger Shakespeare Library.

Julius Caesar

DRAMATIS PERSONÆ

ACT III, SCENE II. The Forum.

First Citizen
O piteous spectacle!

Second Citizen
O noble Caesar!

Third Citizen
O woful day!

Fourth Citizen
O traitors, villains!

First Citizen
O most bloody sight!

Second Citizen
We will be revenged.

All
Revenge! About! Seek! Burn! Fire! Kill! Slay!
Let not a traitor live!

Antony
Stay, countrymen.

First Citizen
Peace there! hear the noble Antony.

Second Citizen
We’ll hear him, we’ll follow him, we’ll die with him.

Antony
Good friends, sweet friends, let me not stir you up
To such a sudden flood of mutiny.
They that have done this deed are honourable:
What private griefs they have, alas, I know not,
That made them do it: they are wise and honourable,
And will, no doubt, with reasons answer you.
I come not, friends, to steal away your hearts:
I am no orator, as Brutus is;
But, as you know me all, a plain blunt man,
That love my friend; and that they know full well
That gave me public leave to speak of him:
For I have neither wit, nor words, nor worth,
Action, nor utterance, nor the power of speech,
To stir men’s blood: I only speak right on;
I tell you that which you yourselves do know;
Show you sweet Caesar’s wounds, poor poor dumb mouths,
And bid them speak for me: but were I Brutus,
And Brutus Antony, there were an Antony
Would ruffle up your spirits and put a tongue
In every wound of Caesar that should move
The stones of Rome to rise and mutiny.

All
We’ll mutiny.

First Citizen
We’ll burn the house of Brutus.

Third Citizen
Away, then! come, seek the conspirators.

Antony
Yet hear me, countrymen; yet hear me speak.

All 
Peace, ho! Hear Antony. Most noble Antony!

Antony
Why, friends, you go to do you know not what:
Wherein hath Caesar thus deserved your loves?
Alas, you know not: I must tell you then:
You have forgot the will I told you of.

 

On 5/26/15 – Join me in the continuation of

Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar


I have no answers for all that has unfolded

The lies you tell

Make people stand and stare

I have no knowledge of what you’ve said

My life’s a mess because I cannot address

All of what’s been said

Do I want to be to be a part of your puzzle

Do I want my life to be in shambles

This is nothing I could have foreseen

I thought your love was meant just for me

But now I see

There has been at least three

That you’ve shared a part of yourself with

Now I’m no longer wanting this life with thee

So heed this warning

I’ve set you free

I’m headed now to a place I can just be me
