Tuesdays with Morrie

In “Tuesdays With Morrie,” Morrie was a teacher that had an endless amount of love for his job. He made connections with many of his students, and saw many of them as his friends. He and his student, Mitch, had become extremely close with one another. Years passed by and Mitch graduated, unfortunately losing touch with his beloved teacher. While he is living his own live, Morrie has entered a life long struggle. He has been “diagnosed with ALS, and not given very long to live” (Albom, 46). The moment Mitch gets word of this, he knows that he needs to meet with him and catch up before it’s too late. The two decide to meet every Tuesday. During these gatherings, Morrie teaches Mitch lessons that he could not possibly receive from anyone else. He tells him of his entire life, along with his mistakes, and his new found discoveries. His words change Mitch and all of his previous beliefs. This teacher has given his student the greatest gift of all, the gift of wisdom.
I loved this book even more than I thought I would. The lessons are so raw and completely valuable to anyone who reads. Your perspective on life will be altered after reading this inspirational story. The love between these two people is so beautiful and deep-rooted. They were not even family, yet they were closer than many fathers and sons will ever be. They shared an unbreakable bond that strengthened throughout the journey of Morrie’s illness. I highly recommend this read to everyone who wants to learn a few lessons regarding life as a whole. You will not be disappointed. I hope you all take the time to read this beautiful piece of literature, it is something that everyone should read at least once in their lives. LK

Tuesdays with Morrie, written by Mitch Albom, is a wonderful book about the meaning of life and life’s most important lessons. When Mitch goes back to see his old professor, who has a limited time left due to a disease that has taken over his life, they recall life lessons from Morrie. Filled with advice for all ages, Tuesdays with Morrie is a short book that everyone should find the time to read.
Whether you’re looking for a quick read or a meaningful book, Tuesdays with Morrie is guaranteed to leave you satisfied with a new outlook on life. After hearing news of Morrie’s impending death, Mitch takes a break from being a workaholic and goes back to visit his professor. Mitch becomes a developed character after listening and comprehending Morrie’s “last class”. Morrie tells various stories and outlooks on life which leave the reader looking for more advice and insight; for example, one of my favorite quotes from the book reads “Death ends a life, not a relationship”. This is truly a book which discusses the meaning of life, the priorities of life, and the perspectives of life.
While this book can be a bit sad, as it discusses death and such, I still recommend this to those mature enough. However, do not be surprised if you become attached to the character Morrie and find yourself upset as you read about what he goes through on a daily basis with his disease. Besides that, Tuesdays with Morrie is a book that all people should read and enjoy. Find time to sit down, to enjoy, and to reflect on Morrie’s pure advice on life.

I read this book when it was first released several years ago and have long considered it a "how to" book when it comes to dealing with real things in real life. I bought three copies; one for myself since my original copy was absconded during a divorce (don't feel sorry for me, the divorce ended up being a good thing), and one for each of two people who I know and love who are going through some "stuff" right now. I wanted to help them see the big lessons in little things, and that in the end, as Morrie said "Love wins. Love always wins."
I cannot recommend this book more highly. For anyone, anywhere, traveling this road of life.

What a wonderful book, I couldn't put it down! I cannot even imagine going through the last stages of my own life and being as brave as Morrie. He was filled with such happiness and joy in his own life. He had regrets but realized that it is okay as long as you can reconcile with yourself in the end. Many different quotes, paragraphs, and pages inspired me or triggered me to reflect upon my own life.

The idea of detaching oneself from emotions just perplexed me. I was heart broken in the end. Morrie says, "If you hold back on the emotions - if you don't allow yourself to go through them - you can never get to being detached, you're too busy being afraid. You're afraid of the pain, you're afraid of the grief. You're afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing your self to dive right in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely. You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, 'All right. I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.'"

Another quote that I find illuminating... "In the beginning of life, when we are infants, we need others to survive, right? And at the end of life, when you get like me, you need others to survive right?... But here's the secret: in between, we need others as well." This line in the book had me stop and think about everything I have in my life rather than anything I am "missing" in life. Why should we focus on not having that special someone, when truly, many of us have multiple people in our lives that care for us and will be there for us in the end. Although Morrie does go on to say that everyone should find that love to marry. But why do we need to? While I hope to find my "true love" I still am blessed for those I have met in the past to years. I am only ashamed that I never saw them sitting right there in front of me until I read this book.

If you ever find yourself questioning what is important in life or how you should divide your time among the many active aspects of your life, read this book!
