Jaques is one of the most insightful characters that Shakespeare has. He takes "melancholy" to an intelligent plain, He even gives Hamlet a run for his money. Jaques even looks for melancholy to spin his wisdom, "I can suck melancholy out of a song, as a weasel sucks eggs." Check out his famous quote,
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players..."
Now that's about as good as metaphors get! Jaques can turn humanity into prose that everybody can relate to.
