Thanks very much - it was indeed the Ghandi quote I was thinking of. Much appreciated!

nine years pass...

Searching for a quote which I believe to be related to a professor, teaching students how to think?

Something to the effect of "when encountering a new topic, do not ask 'what is my opinion on this thing' - but rather ask 'what is my *relation* to this thing?'".

It's one of the wisest things I've ever encountered, and I cannot for the life of me remember who said it?

THANK YOU!!! That had been driving me nuts.

Of course it is from Fan Studies. It is a very, very Fan Studies attitude to take.
