Great quote from Whitney DuBarry Hayes, a high school student from Palm Desert California, who spent a semester in Paris:

"When nothing is familiar or routine, one is able to examine, criticize, and perceive his/her surroundings wholly.

If one is never a foreigner and becomes comfortable in an identity, one becomes stagnant and ceases to truly live."
