the university of life

In the University of Life we're all students. There are many paths to knowledge and knowledge hasn't much to do with wisdom. Go figure!

With 4600 full-time employees and 39000 students (figures from 2006) the Stockholm University is an educational power house. Here's a view inside one of the six main buildings "södra husen" of the campus in Frescati. See more?

Interesting design! I think I heard about the U of life from someone but I forgot who...

Happy weekend.

Your words are oh so true. I really like the vantage point you chose!

Black Adder Goes Forth: “I, on the other hand, am a fully-rounded human being, with a degree from the University of Life, a diploma from the School of Hard Knocks, and three gold stars from the Kindergarten of Getting the Shit Kicked Out of Me.”

Great photo of a great University so much popular all over.

I'm probably becoming a sentimental old fool. Used to dislike these premises and I still don't think they'll be remembered for their architectural qualities but times change and so do we. And so does, in fact, the University where a relatively new library has been added. We'll return here for a couple more glimpses.

Peter: Thanks for reminding me of another quote from the grandmaster of sarcasms... ;)

Thanks all for stopping by!

I'm definitely with Adder. Knowledge from school is great, but you have to add knowledge and experiences from life to get the hole picture. Or at least a glimpse of it ;)
