Follow your spirit, and upon this charge Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'

Happy birthday, Will Shakespeare, and Happy St. George's Day, England!

Shakespeare's birthplace

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
