Antony is called to Rome--but is reluctant to leave Cleopatra.
Antony: "Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch Of the ranged empire fall! Here is my space. Kingdoms are clay. Our dungy earth alike Feeds beast as man. The nobleness of life Is to do thus, when such a mutual pair [Embracing] And such a twain can do't, in which I bind, On pain of punishment, the world to weet We stand up peerless." (I.ii.33-40).
