If you could imagine you can say by human concept -> mother represent the class, and constructor is the woman womb. So when you instate a new object from the mother, you simple tell the mother to bring a new child (object) to life. this -> refer to the class you inside, in the current time (the child).

Before long time I write an answer on Quora while I was learning Python, I hope it will give you more clearance on what these names are: How would you explain the concept of a "class" in Python to a 10 year old?
