This phrase comes from Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar
Play: Julius Caesar -Act 1. Scene 2
- Cassius: Did Cicero say anything?
Casca: Ay, he spoke Greek.
Cassius: To what effect?
Casca: Nay, an I tell you that I'll ne'er look you i' the face again: but those that understood him smiled at one another, and shook their heads; but, for mine own part, it was Greek to me.
- Scene ii
