Tuesdays With Morrie

I have read the book Tuesdays with Morrie, 4 years ago–and totally loved it.

The book by Mitch Albom, a story of an old man, a young man and life’s greatest lessons was so inspiring..

About the book

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 Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.

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.

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

A friend told me that there’s also a film on this. Recently I was able to download it and viewed it yesterday.Man, the film was soooo beautiful. It was so touching and moving, I hope everyone can see it! I even shed tears on the last part of the movie. Right this very moment, I can still hear Morrie’s wisdom reverberating in my ears.

And here are some of the more memorable lines from the book.

Watch the movie or read the book and appreciate living and dying more!

    I read the book but I’ve never seen the film. I’m interested in it.

    I liked how Morrie tried to keep in touch with his friends, and tried to face the world.
    He knows how to love others.
    When I get lost in my life, sometimes I try to find the book and read the part of it again.

    I wish I had a teacher like Morrie.
