    you wont get big without weight lifting but to get in a good physique you can do cardio , pulls ups , chin ups etc , push ups , ab exercises etc...but i havent seen anyone getting big without weight lifting , if you dont prefer weights then dont use them but dont expect to become as big ! im not sure though if a good bulking diet in combination with all the above exercises + more can give you some ok results... im affraid thats really really hard tho...

    What are your goals?

    You can perform other forms of exercise if you want, although weight lifting will be definitely among the best forms of exercise/stimulation to transform your body in terms of increasing/maintaining muscle size, increasing your metabolic rate and the other various positive effects it has to offer.
    Consistency is the key

    Pretty much what John V said. You can work on endurance, agility, and physique and get into great shape doing body weight exercises (ex. http://www.muscleandstrength.com/wor...t-workout.html) in combination with cardio such as jogging or HIIT. However without weight lifting but you will never get much size and strength doing this as compared to what you can achieve with weights.

    You can get into GREAT physical shape without weights only it will be harder. Dips, pullups/chinups, handstand pushups, one-legged squats, pushups and situps are all great exercises and will build muscle (if you eat enought) and will get you incredibly strong and athletic. As long as you keep prgressing and find ways to keep reps under 15, you will be impressed by the all around results you will acieve (not just building muscle). If you want to get more defined then don't stuff yourself with food and do skipping and/or jogging. You should be able to achieve the results you want if you are committed (but with weights it'l be easier). Good luck.
