Consider the following excerpt from a short story: 'The old man, a mere skeleton of his former self, sat quietly in the corner of the room. His eyes, once filled with a fire that could ignite the coldest hearts, now held only the faintest glimmer of a summer's day. He spoke softly, 'My dear, life is a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more.
