Having that in mind, I was struck when I stumbled onto some information about Salamanca University. Founded in 900 AD, it is the oldest Spanish-language university in the world. But it was their motto that caught my eye:
Quod natura non dat, Salmantica non praestat
For those not steeped in the dead language of Latin, it translates roughly as:
What nature does not give, Salamanca does not offer
Skill or talent? Can we identify the difference?
