Happy belated feast: “Disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage”


Battle of Agincourt Day

Some other good scenes.


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:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage

    Hilary,
    The news says that Norcia had another earthquake. Are you OK? Let us know what’s happening!
    Praying for you, the monks and the citizens.

    Stirring stuff to be sure. Hilary, I seldom have much to say of value so I appreciate your tolerance in this comment section. I think it’s important to be counted, to give you moral support, and to encourage others.

    My family and I frequently watch this very version of “Henry V”. We are divided in our loyalties–some of us like the English winning the day, others of us hope that the NEXT time we watch the movie the FRENCH will win. What saddens all of us is that England and France were CATHOLIC at that time and engaged in bloody warfare. I am sure the subtleties of the politics of the time are lost on us. But it’s a GREAT movie. Thanks for the scenes! God bless.
