Get away from it and detach it from yourselves. Life is too short to waste on trivial things. It talks about detachment from an emotion. These things force your eyes to be open.
Morrie calls himself lucky; I am not sure if, under the circumstances he was in, I would call myself that. Writing can be an egotistical profession, disguised in nobility. If you love someone, love them with all you have; if you are sad, cry until you cannot cry anymore; so that when the same emotion hits you again, you know exactly what is going to happen.
