Seven Ages of Man

"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 ...."


As You Like It
William Shakespeare

The poem was compressed into limerick form by the historian Robert Conquest.[2]


Seven ages: first puking and mewling,
Then very pissed off with your schooling,
Then romances and then fights,
Then judging chaps' rights,
Then sitting in slippers, then drooling.
