Morrie points to a hibiscus plant. This plant is a metaphor for life, he says. Everything that is born will die. The plant was once beautiful, but now its petals are shriveled, just like Morrie's skin. They fall into the soil and help other plants grow. Soon, Morrie's body will be part of the soil too. However, humans are different from plants and animals because if others can remember the love we gave, they never go away andlive on through memories.
