An image of time to think about at I turn a quarter of a century old

I turn 25 tomorrow.
A quarter of a century! Dostoevsky was a celebrated novelist by 24. Alexander the Great "liberated" Egypt by age 24. Einstein was working on gravitational theory while being a full professor.
Well, hopefully that's the end of my "quarter life crisis," rant. Really not much of a crisis, just a wistful contemplation.

Noah was 500 years old when he was called.

Sarah was 90 and Abraham was 100 when they were called to have a child and give birth to the people Israel.

Even Jesus had a low profile until his early 30s.

Happy birthday. Enjoy it, don't sweat it.
