Just last week after class, an upper classmen [taking the introductory programming course] walked up to me and we had this dialogue:
Student: Well done. This is the only course that has ever made me feel stupid.
Marco: Stupid? I don't want you to feel stupid.
Student: No, really well done. This course makes me feel stupid, because it's showing me that I really do not know how to think.
Marco: But, are you learning how to think about and analyze problems?
Student: Are you kidding? This is the course I have learned the most in. I should have had such a course as a freshman like these guys [i.e. the other students in the class].
Marco: There is nothing stupid about learning. Well done! :-)
