You know you are educated when you can entertain conflicting ideas and not get frustrated or give up.
You know you are educated when you don't need to shout your opinions nor demonize your ideological foes; rather, you choose to search for new ways to create meaning and understanding, finding ways to bridge ideological gulfs.
You know you are educated when you realize that if you live a million years, you will never learn everything, but, by gosh, you are going to try anyway because learning is the greatest joy you can experience when you're all by yourself.
You know you are educated when your curiosity will NOT accept not knowing something; a question will niggle your brain until you must find an answer.
And finally, you know you are educated when you realize you can NEVER know enough.
