According to the author, what does Morrie plan to have written on his tombstone?
During "The Ninth Tuesday" the author and Morrie explore why people are in such a hurry. Morrie explains to the author that, when someone would cut him off in traffic, he would, "raise [his] hand, as if [he] was going to make a negative gesture, and then [he] would wave his hand and smile." How does this story relate to the broader conversation shared between Mitch and Morrie?
Morrie comments that he, "admires people who are focused on their destination," as they can hurry in a meaningful way.
Morrie reveals that, "it is impossible for [him] not to envy the young" as they are hurrying on to new adventures.
Morrie reminds the author that he would "rather put [his] energies into people" instead of hurrying through the world.
