"I shall establish a school and if you can bear the climate, then you shall be the director. I am sure all the young ones, the best in the country shall come to us; Blumentritt-Rizal will stay in the memory of the Filipino people like Goethe and Schiller, like Horatius and Virgil, like the Humboldts." - Extract from a letter of Jose Rizal to his friend Ferdinand Blumentritt.
