More quotes by Billings, Josh

HENRY: Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse:
We would not die in that man’s company,
That fears his fellowship to die with us.

Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616) English dramatist and poet
