Would Morrie agree that everyone should have children?
Morrie wouldn't say that everyone should have children. In his conversation with Mitch, he makes it clear that no one has the right to tell someone else that they should or should not have them. That would obviously include Morrie. That said, Morrie also says that there's no experience quite like having children. His children, as with all his family, have been a constant source of joy for him, and he simply can't imagine a life without them. The love they bring to his life is absolutely essential for his well-being. As Morrie quotes the poet W.H. Auden, it's a case of "Love, or perish." It makes it all the sadder, then, for Morrie to have to contemplate life without them and for him to to think about his family living without him.
