Freedom and slavery, the one is the name of virtue, and the other of vice, and both are acts of the will.
He is free who lives as he wishes to live; who is neither subject to compulsion nor to hindrance, nor to force; whose movements to action are not impeded, whose desires attain their purpose, and who does not fall into that which he would avoid.
We must not believe the many, who say that only free people ought to be educated, but we should rather believe the philosophers who say that only the educated are free.

Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish? Nothing else.
Only the educated are free.
