In those lines Caesar does not say anything of Cassius. Please recheck which act and lines you have a question about.
Look at Act 1 Scene 2,
" Caesar sees Cassius and comments to Antony that Cassius looks like a man who thinks too much; such men are dangerous, he adds. Antony tells Caesar not to worry, but Caesar replies that he prefers to avoid Cassius: Cassius reads too much and finds no enjoyment in plays or music—such men are never at ease while someone greater than themselves holds the reins of power."
