Assunto:  Of many firsts
 
Mensagem:  A man of many firsts = A man who does many things for the first time in history.  Some "firsts" as personal, that is, other have done them before but NOT the person named.

Usually, these are wonderful things such having honest elections, winning a prize despite adverstiy, breaking a record, inventing something never seen before, etc.

2013 was a year of many firsts for me. I ran a mile in three minutes twenty five seconds.  I invented an artificial liver.  It was the first time I had seen the Amazon.  I sold my first book to a publisher.  I got married for the first (and last) time.  I piloted a twin engine airplane.  (And so forth.)
