During my undergraduate years, I had the privilege of taking a Shakespearean class and was also able to travel through Europe. I vividly remember going to Stratford-upon-Avon and watching a Shakespeare play, As You Like It. The 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,” struck a profound chord deep within me. Shakespeare’s words are not merely those of a playwright but instead, those of an enlightened being. He describes who we are with great insight and accuracy.
