The Paisley Report will be taking a short break this week to tend to some behind the scenes stuff and recharge our batteries. Barring any unforeseen important announcements, we’ll be back next week with more art, video, poetry, event announcements, etc. In the meantime enjoy your Memorial Day and the rest of your long weekend.
Here is one of Shakespeare most famous speeches as performed by Kenneth Brannagh in an Oscar nomintated performance from 1989’s “Henry V”.
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 Crispian’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 rememb’red.
