Whenever I went in my life, I met people wanting to gobble up something new. Gobble up a new car. Gobble up a new piece of property. Gobble up the latest toy. And then they wanted to tell you about it. ” Guess what i got?…Guess what i got?…

You know how i always interpreted that? These were people so hungry for love that they were accepting substitutes. They were embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship.

“Money is not a substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitutes for tenderness. I can tell you, as i’m sitting here dying, when you most need it, neither money nor power will give you the feeling you’re looking for, no matter how much of them you have”said Morrie.
