    Although love has a different meaning in both relationships, it is still the most powerful emotion felt for both. During the novel, Morrie is constantly saying that “[t]he most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” ( Albom, P.52). To further discuss, he is trying to explain that love is not as it is perceived as, it is not something that makes one weak but creates strength. By accepting that, love will be easier to give and it will not be as scary to let people love you. In addition, love is what reassures the population about death.…

I now end every conversation that I have with her on a positive note.…

    Going through tough times can be the worst, but when you try to work it out there is always hope; we need this communication in our lives to help us learn what there is and what isn’t there. For instance, when loving family you try to do anything for them to bring a smile on there face because it means the world, so that means going through so much in life and trying your best to succeed even if it’s very difficult. Also Albom writes, “‘ You strip away all that stuff and you focus on the essentials. When you realize you are going to die, you see everything much differently’” (Albom 24). Priority is what is used mostly in any of us, we try to take unnecessary opportunities out of our lives to spend every last minute of it with our loved ones; it changes the way we see things in a fascinated but shocked way.…

    It signifies the speaker’s fears that her beloved will forget about her after she passes away. This concerns her more than death itself. The speaker has two main goals in mind, the preparation of her beloved for her death and for him to remember her. In the beginning the speaker is worried that her beloved will not remember her, but in end, tells him that it is okay not to remember her; this twist perpetuates a sense of irony. In the first half of the poem her thoughts are of her needs and desires, but in the second half of the poem her thoughts are only of his wellbeing.” Line 11 “Yet if you should forget…” signals the turning point in the conversation and the speaker’s logic, also highlights the paradox of her request.…

    Now, the patient knows the treatments are not working. The patient also knows she is leaving her family in debt after she is gone. Therefore, the best option to her is to commit suicide so she does not suffer and the family will not be in financial debt. Since assisted suicide is not legal, she uses an unreliable method of death. Micah Issitt and Heather Newton write about the untrustworthy options for death: "Acting independently of a physician 's advice, patients may choose unreliable methods to end their lives, such as drug overdoses, firearms, and asphyxiation" (Issitt and Newton 4).…

    I think your best advice on the subject would be to not allow yourself to hate the previous lover. You state that if a person allows themselves to hate their lost love, that means they are either petty or they are still in love. You instead tell a person to try to forget their lover, and to continue on in life without them. This advice is something that would do well to a lot of people if they could hear it after they lose a lover. People allow depression or anger to overcome them, and this makes forgetting the love even harder.…

    Instead, she will become increasingly reliant on caretakers. Dead, on the other hand, she will no longer pose as an imposition to others. Nevertheless, another important factor to consider is Ms. Reese’s family and friends. Sure she will be unable to contribute to society as a whole, her existence is still quite sentimental to her loved ones.
