I've read The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day, and for a third time, Mitch Albom did not let me put a book down without finishing the entire thing!
Through Albom's story, Morrie Schwartz has taught me:
- Life is not about counting DOWN the days. It is about looking UP at what life has left to offer us.
- Materialism and what's "in" at the moment is incomparable to the relationships we foster and keep.
- It is better to dance to your own beat than to follow the steps of others.
- "Love each other or perish." - Probably my favorite quote out of the whole book, but there are countless quotes from Morrie that I absolutely loved.
Tuesdays With Morrie is the reason why everyone should read.
