Seven Ages of Man

In the Shakespeare play, As You Like It, a man named Jacques gave a long speech about the seven stages of mankind. He said "men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances. And one man in his time plays many parts." Jacques describes a newborn baby. One who is crying. The he grows up into a school boy. The boy walks to school like it is the worst thing in the world. Then he becomes a lover and meets someone who eventually breaks his heart. The young boy grows up into a soldier. The soldier then becomes a justice with his mighty gavle. The justice grows old and passes away.
