An Open Window for uprising

”Uppsaliensare och lundensare kommer att finna, att deras kamrater
i Göteborg försvinner i gatubilden. Våra vänner från Stockholm kommer förgäves
att spana efter prinsessor av blodet. Det enda vi kan erbjuda är ett fönster som alltid
står öppet mot världen. Det fönstret släpper in ett luftdrag som tycks vara hälsosamt för
frihetens och upproriskhetens bakterier.”

An old quote from the earlier days of the University of Gothenburgs  history,, goes something like; We were not the largest or biggest (like the ivy-covered ones in Lund and Uppsala and we are not looking for blue blood, –  like the Stockholm dito, instead they state that ” The only we can offer is a window that always is OPEN  to the world. That window allows a draft that seems to be healthy for the bacteria of freedom and uprising”

From the History of The University of Gothenburg
