Question Answer
TitleAll The World's A Stage by William Shakespeare
1All the world's a stage,
2And all the men and women merely players;
3They have their exits and their entrances,
4And one man in his time plays many parts,
5His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
6Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
7Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
8And shining morning face, creeping like snail
9Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
10Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
11Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
12Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
13Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
14Seeking the bubble reputation
15Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
16In fair round belly with good capon lined,
17With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
18Full of wise saws and modern instances;
19And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
20Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
21With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
22His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
23For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
24Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
25And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
26That ends this strange eventful history,
27Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
28Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

Question Answer
TitleThe Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
1Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
2And sorry I could not travel both
3And be one traveler, long I stood
4And looked down one as far as I could
5To where it bent in the undergrowth;
6Then took the other, as just as fair,
7And having perhaps the better claim
8Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
9Though as for the passing there
10Had worn them really about the same,
11And both that morning equally lay
12In leaves no step had trodden black.
13Oh, I kept the first for another day!
14Yet knowing how way leads on to way
15I doubted if I should ever come back.
16I shall be telling this with a sigh
17Somewhere ages and ages hence:
18Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
19I took the one less traveled by,
20And that has made all the difference.
