In "Julius Caesar" this line,spoken by Artemidorus, a teacher of rhetoric, means that being overly confident can lead to carelessness which, in turn, allows conspiracy to form and proceed. Caesar trusts too much Cassius, Cinns, Trebonius, Caius Ligarius, and others close to him; he is relaxed in this trust and fears no one. Of course, the reader later realizes that this confidence in the love of the Romans is the tragic mistake that Caesar makes.
