About Tuesdays with Morrie Book

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A special 25th anniversary edition of the beloved book that has changed millions of lives with the story of an unforgettable friendship, the timeless wisdom of older generations, and healing lessons on loss and grief—featuring a new afterword by the author
 
“A wonderful book, a story of the heart told by a writer with soul.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”
 
Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.
 
For Mitch Albom, that person was his college professor Morrie Schwartz.

Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder. Wouldn’t you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?

Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final “class”: lessons in how to live. “The truth is, Mitch,” he said, “once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”

Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie’s lasting gift with the world.

TRUTH

The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.

Love always wins

Life is a series of pulls back and forth... A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. Most of us live somewhere in the middle. A wrestling match...Which side win? Love wins. Love always wins

What I have learnt from this book ( pt 1)

What I have learnt from this book ( pt 1)

Reality is everyone's gonna die today or tomorrow, but nobody takes it seriously, but if we consider this fact life would be different.

Accept and value what you have, keep spreading love. Do what you love, define your purpose.

It teaches you the value of family, why family is so important. Family is everything.

It also illustrates the fact that we are tend to be more intrested in others live, we get envious of their happiness, and in all this we forget that there are other important and meaning full things in our lives.

Yes! It's not possible to stay happy all the time. Cry when you feel like , just let it out your frustration, anger, fears etc. But make when you're done you won't cry for the same reason again and again.

Vaishnavi s.

I understood what real satisfaction and happiness is, - doing what you love, being around people you love.

Sharing your accomplishments, success, failures, greif your life with your loved ones.

You know you are happy when at the end of the day, there are no regrets just an excitement for tomorrow, and being satisfied with what you did today.

Tuesday's with Morrie

A beautiful read. Morrie Schwartz, lying in his deathbed, leaves no stone unturned to complete his final thesis on the subject of life. A dreary topic such as death sounds deep and enriching. His ideologies about the society and how hollow they are an eye opener.

A must read, especially in the current times when death has besieged the whole world, one needs to show compassion and love for each other.

"Love each other or perish"

"We must love one another or die."

Family Matters

"This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It's knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work."

Seize the moment. ⚡🦋✨

“What if today were my last day on earth?”

Nothing teaches gratitude as much as thoughts about how precious time is. Truly the best way to go forth in life is to appreciate how precious it is to be alive. When we think of it this way, we are more purposeful with how we spend our time and what goals we give ourselves.

Positive attitude towards life

mitch had every reason to despise his life, but he didn't.

He appreciated every last second of his life.

This is honestly one of the best heartwarming books I ever read

Dear Human, From life

The most important thing is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.

Maybe death is the great equalizer, the one big thing that can finally make strangers shed a tear for one another.

We are surrounded by the walls of our own insecurities and to bring them down we need to be humble and open up our heart to the world so that we can love with all our heart to become a better version of who we really our.

Death

Everyone knows they're going to die, but nobody believes it. If we I'm sure we would do things differently. The things we spend so much time on might not seem important making us being able to appreciate even the slightest liberties in life. We are too involved in materialistic things. We take things what really matter our relationships, the universe around us, our health for granted.

In order to stay humble about the idea of death we need to accept the fact that one day we are all going to leave this world behind. That way we can actually be more involved in life while we are living it.

1

Dear Life,

In the end it's not the fear of being dead that scares us but the fear of being forgotten. Therefore, we try our best to leave a mark specially as we move near and near to our heavenly abode.
