The Power of Saying Hello

Morrie Schwartz spent time working in a mental institution when he was younger. It was one of his first jobs, after he received his PhD he would observe mental patients and monitor their treatments.

"One of the patients, a middle-aged woman, came out of her room every day and lay face down on the tile floor, stayed there for hours, as doctors and nurses stepped around her. Morrie watched in horror. . . Every day she did the same thing: came out in the morning, lay on the floor, stayed there until evening, talking to no one, ignored by everyone. It saddened Morrie. He began to sit on the floor with her, even lay down alongside her, trying to draw her out of her misery. Eventually, he got her to sit up, and even return to her room. What she mostly wanted, he learned, was the same thing many people want—someone to notice she was there."
