Dr. John Lukacs, Historian

“Had someone told me before the age of twenty-one that I would become a teacher I would have laughed.  In the Gymnasium and even at the university our professors were our enemies.  This had much to do with the strict and stiff Germanic and bureaucratic organization and requirements of Hungarian schools and universities that, otherwise, were on a very high academic level: the standards of the Gymnasium graduation examination, at seventeen, were well beyond what is required of a graduate of a top American college or university now.” ― Remembered Past; On History, Historians, and Historical Knowledge, by John Lukacs, Chapter VI, Page 633, edited by Mark G. Malvasi and Jeffrey O. Nelson, ISI Books, Wilmington, Delaware, © 2005 ISI Books.
