All the world's a stage...

I don't know if anyone of you out there has ever experienced this or not , but I  have had such experiences...when people just forget all the beautiful times you have shared, all the fun, the giggles, tickles, senseless talks,sharing, caring, and many other precious moments and they just take the leap and move ahead, away from you......many times its because of ego but at times deflection (as my husband says) plays a bigger role.
For me , I don't judge people.....nor i say , i will give you "1 more" chance, because who I am i to say that.....I am just playing my part without judging, commenting on others. All I say is - Forgive people, have a bigger heart...it will make you a bigger , contended person.

I really like this passage from Shakespeare's As You Like It, 1600, it tells us about the reality of life:

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 lined,
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 saved, 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.
