“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms;
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel And shining morning face,
creeping like snail Unwillingly to school. And then the lover, Sighing like furnace,
with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honour,
sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon’s mouth.
And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lin’d,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut, Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper’d pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well sav’d, a world too wide For his shrunk shank;
and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble,
pipes And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion;
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.” — Jaques (Act II, Scene VII, lines 139-166)
Very true !
All have a reason to come to earth and their cycle repeats/pass on as ages pass by. When they are born , they are so innocent and carefree , and on the later stages they take up responsibilities and move ahead to support their family,once after their children attain that particular stage , the parents pass on their responsibilities to them and start staying under their support and at last leave everything leading to a stage similar to that of the first one..sans teeth ,sans eyes , sans taste , sans everything!! the great legend W.Shakespeare has explained it in depth and thats the fact of life.
Live your fullest when u have a chance..enjoy the fullest till you are here, and leave your assets to the generations that come to make them feel proud of wat u r, cos Art is long and life is short!!
