I tell my students, it's not difficult to identify with somebody like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you.

Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop.
Switzerland is a country where very few things begin, but many things end.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Begin challenging your assumptions. Your assumptions are the windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile or the light won't come in.
