We Band of Brothers

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.”  Another great phrase that Shakespeare wrote, this time for the mouth of Henry V.

Here it is explained. The leadership in the real field of battle, against great odds.  You may find this interesting as well.

Here it is enacted with Kenneth Branagh. You may wish to go about 2 mins 20 secs in.

A bit later King Henry speaks:

We are but warriors for the working-day;
Our gayness and our gilt are all besmirched
With rainy marching in the painful field;

And time hath worn us into slovenly:
But, by the mass, our hearts are in the trim;

You may perhaps recognize yourself in this situation: perhaps time hath worn you down some, yet still your heart is in the trim.


And may your Team have its heart half so much in the trim.
