What walks on 4 legs in the morning 2 legs in the noon and 3 legs at night?

What walks on 4 legs in the morning 2 legs in the noon and 3 legs at night?
The answer is a human. At the beginning of life (the morning) he crawls as a baby on all fours. During the middle of his life he walks on two legs (noon) and at the end of his life (the night) he walks with a cane (three legs). The cane is an ancient symbol representing knowledge according to Egyptian belief.

This is the classic Riddle of the Sphinx; the Sphinx at Thebes posed the riddle to travelers; if they failed to solve it, they were killed, if they answered it correct the Sphinx would kill itself; Oedipus answered it correctly.
