St. Crispin's Day

This day is called the Feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a-tiptoe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
Henry V, IV iii.

The best ever battle speech from Shakespeare, performed by the best Shaespearean actor. It gives me goosebumps every time.

The best ever??? That's a big call - what about... no, well what about.. no, that one isn't as good either...

...ok, you win. It really is the best ever, no question about it. Thanks for the goosebumps - it gave me them too.
