Hi @llduncan,

I love that the movie version included the full verse that is the source of that quote, and performed by none other than Jack Lemmon, is one of those most poignant moments of the film.

All I have is a voice
To undo the folded lie,
The romantic lie in the brain
Of the sensual man-in-the-street
And the lie of Authority
Whose buildings grope the sky:
There is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.

Thank you for bringing Morrie into the classroom.

Your friend,
Mitch
