Both these wise men once differed in values when it came to life. Morrie believed that it was better to rather perish than to live a life without any love, as he was quoted to have said "If you don't have the support and love and caring and concern that you get from a family, you don't have much at all.

She does not allow Tita to gain hope for Pedro Marquiz. The injustice of allowing Tita’s older sister, Rosaura, to marry Pedro in Tita’s place is one example of Mama Elena squashing Tita’s hopes of marrying Pedro.. Although Pedro pronounces his true intent and reaffirms his love for Tita, she is still a slave to her mother’s dictating family values. It is a constant war between Mama
Mama Elena’s similar experience of love, with José Treviño, kept suppressed all her life, builds an emotional barrier around her heart. The “bitter poison” of denied romance destroys Mama Elena’s capacity to be loved or to allow Tita to love.
