The first stage he starts with is of course infancy, then he describes a "whining school-boy," and a "young lover, / Sighing like furnace," which most likely describes a boy's teenage years or very young adulthood. The fourth stage he describes is that of a soldier, and that's because most, if not all, young men are expected to enlist in the military. Hence the reference to a soldier describes the stage of life in which a many is a fresh, young man. Next, he likens middle age to a "justice," or judge, because in your middle ages you are much more full of wisdom and able to judge than you were when you were young. Sixthly, he moves into a description of an elderly man "[w]ith spectacles on nose and pouch on side." Finally, the seventh stage he describes is the stage of death, which he likens to a second childhood, or infancy, because once again at death a man is without teeth, eyes, taste, or anything
