Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead !
In

peace, there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness, and humility:

Then imitate the action of the tiger.
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.

Familiar in their mouths as household words, –

Be in their flowing cups freshly remembered.
