I've got to say that, this book changed me. Specifically, it changed the way I was thinking about life.
The whole book is meaningful and totally inspirational. I can repeat this book over and over and always got a new lesson.
I really recommend everyone to read this book.
It will make you appreciate your life, before you can't appreciate it anymore because it's gone.

Quotes Stefanie Sugia Liked

Mitch Albom
“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“You see, you closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too--even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“Be compassionate," Morrie whispered. And take responsibility for each other. If we only learned those lessons, this world would be so much better a place."

He took a breath, then added his mantra: "Love each other or die.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“The truth is, part of me is every age. I’m a three-year-old, I’m a five-year-old, I’m a thirty-seven-year-old, I’m a fifty-year-old. I’ve been through all of them, and I know what it’s like. I delight in being a child when it’s appropriate to be a child. I delight in being a wise old man when it’s appropriate to be a wise old man. Think of all I can be! I am every age, up to my own.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“If you're trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down on you anyhow. And if you're trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“Without love we all like birds with broken wings.”

Mitch Albom
“I thought about all the people I knew who spent many of their waking hours feeling sorry for themselves. How useful it would be to put a daily limit on self-pity. Just a few tearful minutes, then on with the day.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“There is a big confusion in this country over what we want verses what we need...you need food. You want a chocolate sundae.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“There is no such thing as 'too late' in life.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“Don't cling to things because everything is impermanent.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“The problem, Mitch, is that we don't believe we are as much alike as we are. Whites and blacks, Catholics and Protestants, men and women. If we saw each other as more alike, we might be very eager to join in one big human family in this world, and to care about that family the way we care about our own.
But believe me, when you are dying, you see it is true. We all have the same beginning - birth - and we all have the same end - death. So how different can we be?
Invest in the human family. Invest in people. Build a little community of those you love and who love you.
Morrie Schwartz”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“there are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don't respect the other person, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don't know how to compromise, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can't talk openly about what goes on between you, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don't have a common set of values in life, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.' - Morrie Schwartz”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“Giving to other people makes me feel alive. Not my car or my house. Not what I look like in the mirror. When I give my time, when I can make someone smile after they were feeling sad...”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed as ignorant as you were at twenty-two, you'd always be twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It's growth. It's more than the negative that you're going to die, it's the positive that you understand you're going to die, and that you live a better life because of it.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“There is no point in keeping vengeance or stubbornness. These things" -he sighed- "these things I so regret in my life. Pride. Vanity. Why do we do the things we do?

Mitch Albom
“Learn how to live and you'll know how to die; learn how to die, and you'll know how to live.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“I give myself a good cry if I need it. But then I concentrate on the good things still in my life. I don't allow myself any more self-pity than that. A little each every morning, a few tears, and that's all.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“The little things, I can obey. The big things—how we think, what we value—those you must choose yourself. You can't let anyone—or any society—determine those for you.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“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.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“If you hold back on the emotions--if you don't allow yourself to go all the way 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 yourself to dive in, all the way, over your heard even, you experience them fully and completely.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“Everyone knows they re going to die,' he said again, 'but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“I don't mean you disregard every rule of your community. I don't go around naked, for example. I don't run through red lights. The little things, I can obey. But the big things- how we think, what we value- those you must choose yourself. You can't let anyone-or any society- determine those for you. ' -Morrie Schwartz”
