Message
If you think of your mind as a room, then the road to the future is the road you can see from the room's window. Most people labor under the assumption of "one window per room", but in your mind's room, in addition to "the glass window" (which outsiders can see), there are "bamboo-screen covered windows" (which only you can see). If you'd thought "There is only a wall behind that bamboo-screen", you'd probably not have had the confidence to say "I'll be a doctor". Come closer now and peek through this bamboo screen called "Language" to see what kind of world lies beyond.
