Agreed.  I was a Java fan for a couple of years, so when I came to Zope
I had some preconceptions about what constitutes an "object".  I
finally started to get the Zope and Python way of thinking when I
realized you could assign arbitrary properties to objects--and those
arbitrary properties are first class citizens in the language.  For me,
Java restricted me to a mindset that required perfection, while Python
and Zope encouraged exploration without language-imposed limitations.

Python made coding fun again. :-)
