Is this a quote from William Shakespeare? "For he today who sheds his blood with me, he is my brother."
I want to use this "quote" in a memorial service and need to know who said it. Can anyone help?

In "Henry V" , Act IV, Scene III, by William Shakespeare, the King is speaking to his troops and he states:
"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."
