Education doesn't make you happy and .. nor does freedom. We don't become happy because we're free, if we are, or because we've been educated, if we have, but because education may be the means by which we realize we are happy. It opens our eyes, our ears ... it tells us where delights are lurking ... convinces us that there is only one freedom of any importance what-so-ever -- that of the mind -- and gives us the assurance, the confidence, to walk the path our mind -- our educated mind -- offers.

- Iris (movie)
