“Europe has what we do not have yet, a sense of the mysterious and inexorable limits of life, a sense, in a word, of tragedy. And we have what they sorely need: a sense of life's possibilities.’
– Quote by James Baldwin, LATE American novelist.
Europe has been the fountainhead of education for hundreds of years. Its great cities and universities drew students and scholars from the world over in thirst for learning, discovery, and knowledge. The ancient universities of Bologna, Paris, Naples, and Toulouse put Europe in the center of education and learning.
