Dialogue from “The Twilight Samurai”

“Kayano Iguchi: Father, If I learn to do needlework someday I can make kimonos. But what good will book learning ever do me?

Seibei Iguchi: Well, it probably won’t ever be as useful as needlework. But you know, book learning gives you the power to think. However the world might change, if you have the power to think you’ll always survive somehow. That’s true for boys and for girls. All right?

Kayano Iguchi: Yes.”

—Yamada, Yogi. “The Twilight Samurai”. Film. 2002.
