Hi emtwo, I was already aware that it did not come from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and that it may or may not have been said by Caesar himself, which is why I didn't attribute it. What I did not know, was that it's listed on as a previous Internet hoax - so thanks for the heads up.

The quote, however, is one that I've heard before and it popped up again recently while hunting for something else on wikipedia, so as I said... it was running through my head this week thinking about the SOTU, and for me the sentiment was appropriate.
