Citation: “The Spoils,” Rome, TV mini-series on HBO Sunday, November 13, 2005
Usage:
Brutus speaking to his mother of Julius Caesar
Comment: Possibly, a recast of Shakespeare’s “A rose by any other name...” or “A rose is a rose is a rose.”

This was not said by Brutus to his mother in reference to Julius Caeser in the HBO miniseries "Rome". This was said by Brutus to a fellow conspirator who was trying to convince Brutus that killing Ceaser would not be an act of disloyalty or asassination but patriotism.
