Morī Sensei To No Kayōbi =Tuesdays With Morrie
Nonetheless, I still believe this to be a particularly poorly written book that contains more saccharine than substance.
Still, if it brings you some sense of comfort - more strength to you.

So I just finished reading "Tuesdays With Morrie". 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 (for lack of a better word in my head right now) as Morrie. He was filled with such happiness and joy in his own life. He had regrets but realized that it is ok as long as you can reconcile with yourself in the end. I'm not the type of p ...more
Wisdom grows with age. But the development of wisdom also accelerates when mortality becomes clear. Mortality shined down on Morrie Schwartz, a happy not-quite-old man through a quick diagnosis of ALS – or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Morrie was a professor of sociology at Brandeis University; he dedicated his life to the study of individuals’ actions in their respective societies and together he and Mitch Albom wrote his final paper: a study of his life in his society ...more

On one hand, it's the sweet story of a man as he reconnects with a former mentor/professor, who is facing a death sentence via ALS. It's obvious that Albom's "Tuesdays with Morrie" provided them both with something substantially satisfying. And that's inspiring and poignant.
Yet on the other hand, Albom's attempts to enlighten us transforms it into a "Hallmark" ...more
Mawkishly sentimental (here I am, trying to wipe off the stale stench of yesterday's coffee mornings) and terribly trite.
Any person leaning to the left should, or would, recognise what Mitch is talking about. It isn't that Morrie is talking shit. He isn't. However, I think it's terribly ironic that such a venture (it screams "self-help" and "it will t ...more
The quality of this story was outstanding. At parts it was very emotionable. For examp ...more
I'll start by saying that my one real issue with this book was that there wasn't much terribly original thinking within it. I definitely wanted more of a 'Wow, I never thought about it that way' feeling from Morrie's philosophies, and while it's hard to argue with anything he says it didn't feel like anything I hadn't heard from somewhere else before. Something probably by Disney.
In general, the book is well done. I liked the characters and found the story and the language ...more
The book is about a college professor (Morrie) that the author (Mitch ALbom) had while at Brandeis University. This prof. had a profound impact on Albom while he was a student, but a ...more
ALS memang belum begitu dikenal Di Indonesia...tapi sekarang sepertinya sudah banyak sinetron yang menyoroti mengenai ALS ( disemua sinetron itu yang meranin kebetulan adalah Marshanda ) Ato Dorama Jepang " 1 Litre Tears " juga bercerita mengenai ALS.
Waktu itu...Kuliah memang tidak begitu memperhatikan, baca buku diktatnya aja cuma 5 halaman.... Ujian ditanyain Dosen menge ...more
Tuesday would be good, I said. Tuesday would be fine.
This beautifully written 197-page autobiography presented ideas and thoughts that were poignantly sweet and thought-provoking, sprinkled with inexorably heartbreaking elements, and I found myself soaking up its contents in a matter of hours.
There are many lovely themes in Tuesdays with Morrie, most notably I found was the rejection of popular culture in favor of self-created values. As Morrie reflects on his life, he passes ...more
Dan tentunya, buku ini juga memberikan semangat ...more
Albom failed. Unfortunately, I'm the one that feels sorry because Morrie was just such a nice old man who struggled so bravely throughout his illness. Believe me, I wanted his philosophy to change my life.
Morrie's message is "Love each other or die." More specifically, Morrie believes that American culture is flawed because it encourages people to hold financial and career success as their primary goal. While making lots of money might produce some n ...more
Morrie Schwartz, his Philosophy in life, the greatest of his wisdom was etched on this book. I just noticed this. Once one is near death, his wisdom grows. We are nearing death each day.
Life, death, silence, and more. His way of thinking –inspired by death was so lively. If I were given a chance to see a ...more
by: Mitch Albom
The orginization of this book was thought through very well. It's orginized by the days that Mitch visited Morrie, which was tuesdays. Every tuesday a lesson was taught and learned and I thought this was tought through well.The foreshadowing of this book was also good. It gave little hints about Morrie's future but didn't immediately give it away. I thought the quality of the writing was in great form. It really showed how deeply Mitch cared about thi ...more
Seorang kerabat pernah menyuruh saya membuka telapak tangan kiri dan kanan. Kemudian katanya,"lihat garis tangan kiri dan kananmu, keduanya melambangkan huruf M. Tahu artinya?" Saya menggeleng. "Memento mori. Ingatlah kau akan kematian," jawabnya.
Demikianlah yang diajarkan oleh Prof. Morrie Schwartz dalam 14 minggu kepada seorang mahasiswanya, Mitch Albom. Di dalam kuliah 14 minggu, tanpa buku, dengan ujian setiap Selasa, dan tak perlu mempelajari apa pun untuk menyelesaikan ...more
The novel is entitled “Tuesdays with Morrie” which is literally to
whom and when did the writer (this is a memoir made by Mitch Albom about a part of his life, so the main character is the author) meet up. Since the story is introduced by the author as a class every Tuesday, I agree that the given title is the most suitable.
The book is about Morrie Schwartz who is a sociology doctor, by the way I don’t refer to him as a professor since he finished his PH.D., and hi ...more
The title does not really capture the essence of the book
This story is a reminder of how easy it is to get wrapped up in the treadmill of life and the chase for what we think is really important or what will make us feel worthy or important enough
It is a great book to read if you suffer from a debilitating disease or if you are not mobile physically. It helps you to choose another way to get through the day wit ...more
When you get old or mature enough, you’d naturally learn and adopt the message that the story is trying to convey. Yes, that everything in this is world is not permanent and that life isn't fair. The novel teaches us to enjoy each day -- plus the "Amyotrophic Lateral Aclerosis (ALS)' and its devastating effects to human.
If something destructive is destined to come to your life, you must accept it, although accepting it is even harder, you must fight for the moment w ...more
