What are the SEVEN AGES of MAN?
"Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms." (line 6)
"Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel and shining morning face, creeping like snail unwillingly to school." (lines 7-9)
"And then the lover, sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad made to his mistress' eyebrow." (lines 9-11)
"Then a soldier full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard, jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel, seeking the bubble reputation even in the cannon's mouth." (lines 11-15)
"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." (lines 15-19)
"The sixth age shifts into the lean 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. (lines 19-25)
What do BABIES do?
What do school-age children experience?
What are the characteristics of a LOVER?
What is a soldier like?
What do "WISE" adults do?
What happens to a man after his prime?
"Last scene of all, that ends this strange eventful history, is second childishness and mere oblivion, sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything." (lines 25-28)
