Topic: Renaissance Man

Hey everyone,
I was wondering if anyone out there knew where the St. Chrispens Day speech, (Private Venetez + New York, reciites Shakespear to drill Srgt Cass, near the end of the movie Renaissance Man) comes from. I know it's Shakespear, but is it Hamlet, or A Fellow, or something else, I was wondering because I wanted to put some of it on my web page, that honors the men and women of the armed forces, but I need to know which play to look in. Oh and if you read this and want to check out my web page it's on my profile, and on the links page. Oh and you could send me your favorite quotes, and military quotes to Thanks for the help.

here is the passage

This day is called the feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
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.
