Life Lessons from Tuesdays with Morrie.

Hi Readers!

The first book I read in February is Mitch Alboom’s Tuesdays with Morrie. This is one of those life-affirming books with a lot of advice but it doesn’t throw the advice at your face. Rather the words beautifully dance around in your thoughts making you realise about some of the precious things in life; love, family, community and also some of the fearsome things like death & how to be okay with it. Everyone needs to read this book at least once a year because every time you re-read it, you get a new lesson from it. Such is the beauty of this book.
It is the story about two men, a young man confused about life and an old man who is wise even when he is dying. Mitch meets Morrie every Tuesday & they talk about life. They talk about real things that all of us face which makes this book close to the reader.

Goodreads Rating: 4
My Rating: 5

I didn’t want to review it because it’s pretty flawless, so instead this post is all about the quotes I found to be truly inspiring!

  • We all have the same beginning-birth-and we all have the same end-death. So how different can we be?
  • Love is when you are as concerned about someone else’s situation as you are about your own.
  • Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hang on too long.
  • There’s a big confusion in this country over what we want versus what we need.
  • I am every age, up to my own.

  • 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.
  • Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.
  • Tapes, like photographs and videos, are a desperate attempt to steal something from death’s suitcase.

  • Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel.
  • Death ends a life, not a relationship.
  • Don't cling to things because everything is impermanent.
  • Love wins, love always wins.

Until next time,
