Morrie has been diagnosed with one of the most terrible diseases a person can suffer through. While his body steadily withers, his mind remains sharp. This creates a tension between the two: Morrie knows he only has so much time, according to his body, but his mind still has so much to share with others.
Mitch is conflicted by the life he has been leading over the past 16 years. Before, he was a young man driven by principles; however, since he graduated from college and his dreams of becoming a piano player fell through, he’s found himself focusing so much on his journalism career that he’s neglected the things in life that are more important, like family.
Morrie doesn’t buy into the idea that the sole direction of a man in society should be to make more money and buy more things. He rejects the idea totally, which sets him apart from many others who pursue advertising and a culture which tells them more is better. This also put him into a distinct mindset about death and dying, which sets him apart from others and makes him want to share his knowledge.
