Morrie says society puts our values on the wrong things. This goes back to culture. He says people lead disillusioned lives, that they are brainwashed that money is good and that what one owns determines one’s self-worth. Morrie believes that these things are no substitute for tenderness or love, which becomes meaningful for him. He believes that love is the characteristic that makes people whole and happy. He says status will get one nowhere, but love will.
