All the worlds a stage- Jacques-As you like it-Shakespeare

I have a serious thing that I need to say.... I AM ACTUALLY OBSESSED WITH WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE !! I love his sonnets, his poems, his plays EVERYTHING! My favourite play by Shakespeare is As you like it and you may know that a famous speech in As you like it is called All the world's a stage by the character Jacques, So what I have decided to do is to learn the whole speech. I know the beginning bit so far, I'm not cheating I promise!
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 play's many parts,
his acts being seven ages.
I also know a bit of the end:
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, Sans eyes,Sans taste, Sans...everything
(By the way in case you don't know the word 'Sans' means without)
I'm going to learn all of the speech by the end of the holidays !!
