Life is lived on a stage, against a backdrop and props, and amidst a script and a cast not of our own choosing.
Remember that you are an actor in a play, and the playwright chooses the manner of it: if he wants it short, it is short; if long, it is long. If he wants you to act a poor man you must act the part with all your power; and so if your part be a cripple or a magistrate or a plain man. For your business is to act the character that is given you and act it well; the choice of the cast is Another's.

The world is a stage. life is a performance; you come, you see, you go away.
