Excerpt from the movie “Isle of Flowers”

“Human beings distinguish themselves from the other animals by their highly developed telencephalon, the opposable thumb, and by being free. Being free is the state of one who has freedom. Freedom is a word that the human dream feeds on, that no one can explain or fail to understand.”

I don’t usually recommend films but this one is worth it to watch if you can find a version that you can understand (try here though its streaming so if you have slow internet, it’ll be really choppy) . It’s less than 20 minutes long but it’ll leave you with a powerful message. At least, it did for me.
