7 Stages of Life...Which stage are you in?

1. Infancy: In this stage he is dependent on others and needs to be constantly attended to.
2. Childhood: It is in this stage that he begins to go to school. He is reluctant to leave the protected environment of his home as he is still not confident enough to exercise his own discretion.
3. Lover: In this stage, comparable to modern day adolescence, he is always remorseful due to some reason or other, especially the loss of love. He tries to express feelings through song or some other cultural activity.
4. Soldier: It is in this age, comparable to modern day young adult, that he thinks less of himself and begins to think more of others. He is very easily aroused and is hot headed. He is always working towards making a reputation for himself and gaining recognition, however shortlived it may be, even at the cost of his own life.
5. Justice: In this stage, comparable to modern day adult, he has acquired wisdom through the many experiences he has had in life. He has reached a stage where he has gained prosperity and social status. He becomes very attentive of his looks and begins to enjoy the finer things of life.
6. Old age: He begins to lose his charm — both physical and mental. He begins to become the brunt of others' jokes. He loses his firmness and assertiveness, and shrinks in stature and personality.
7. Mental dementia and death: He loses his status and he becomes a non-entity. He becomes dependent on others like a child and is in need of constant support before finally dying.

If you think Shakespeare is right in the above, Which Stage are you in?
I think I am stuck in the "Lover" stage, although I have never succeeded to be one!!

if we think of our lives as a whole, and why we are created by Allah, we will know that each stage has its own gives and takes.

shakespeare usually digs deep inside the human nature. i agree with him, and I'm not sure, may be i am somewhere between the 2nd and 3rd, i mean i am still learning, and seeking love :)
