: What does the meaning of; all the world is stage, and all the men and women are merely players...?

Shakespeare's "As You Like It" Act II Scene 7 -
"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 plays many parts,"

We're all actors in a play.
