Late is never

The humanity's history is full with children and young prodigy. Mozart began to compose music from 5 years age. Galois inherited the humanity a world of new numbers (the complex numbers) little before his death at 20 years. Avicenna graduated from medical doctor at 18. Steven Spielberg began its career at 23 years old and Bill Gates was the richest man from the world at his 37 years old. They were some examples. 

It is common that several people could be discouraged when they turn to see around them and compare themselves with other people who reached their goals younger than them.
Then, most of the people think that some goal is not for them, they say ‘it is no longer for my age’. 
Other people, simply, do not give up.

The man on the street

The man on the street lives and sleeps. He sees sights with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. He does not worry if Earth’s rotation is the origin of day and night cycle. The man on the street spends his life through the years: Holydays and cold during the winter; the spring so full of flowers and hopes; the summer of the vacations; and the autumn plenty of leaves fall and calm. He does not think about the Earth’s translation around the Sun or about the inclination of the terrestrial axis.

The man on the street walks and sometimes he falls ill (although some of humans’ epidemics have happened every 11 years, he does not know that the solar cycle of 11 years as well).
