William Shakespeare: The Life of King Henry V

4. SCENE IV. The field of battle. (continued)

Suivez-vous le grand capitaine.

[Exeunt Pistol, and French Soldier.]

the saying is true, "The empty vessel makes the greatest sound."
Bardolph and Nym had ten times more valour than this roaring
devil i' the old play, that every one may pare his nails with a
wooden dagger; and they are both hang'd; and so would this be,
if he durst steal anything adventurously. I must stay with the
lackeys with the luggage of our camp. The French might have a
good prey of us, if he knew of it; for there is none to guard it
but boys.
