    “It’s the same for women not being thin enough, or men not being rich enough. It’s just what our culture would have you believe. Don’t believe it.”
    I asked Morrie why he hadn’t moved somewhere else when he was younger.
    “Where?”

    “Look, no matter where you live, the biggest defect we human beings have is our shortsightedness. We don’t see what we could be.

    There was his bed, there was his chair, and that was his life. If my life were squeezed into such a thimble, I doubt I could make it smell any better.
