all the world's a stage

all the world's a stage

The teacher asked Jason to explain the meaning of Shakespeare's words:

"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."
