Today I’m going to share with you Tuesdays with Morrie quotes. These great quotes are from this small and simple book, called “Tuesday With Morrie”.Don;t be fooled by this rather thin book, it is full of great inspirational quotes about life and death.
Mitch Albom’s “Tuesdays With Morrie” is about the true story of author Albom’s final days with his former Brandeis University professor Morrie Schwartz.
It is one of my favorite books of all time. It is packed with important life lessons. After reading this book, you will learn to appreciate life more. Then probably you may start living a simpler life or began to savor simple pleasures in life.
All these Tuesdays with Morrie quotes are about life told by Morrie Schwartz to his former student Mitch Albom.
Now, let’s read through Tuesdays With Morrie quotes:
“Love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.”
“When you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”
“As you grow old, you learn more. If you stayed at twenty-two, you’d always be as ignorant as you were at twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It’s growth. It’s more than the negative that you’re going to die, its also the positive that you understand you’re going to die, and that you live a better life because of it.”
“Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel.”
“To know you’re going to die, and to be *prepared* for it at any time That’s better. That way you can actually be *more* involved in our life while you’re living.”
“If aging were so valuable, why do people always say, “Oh, if I were young again.” You never hear people say, “I wish I were sixty-five.”
“If you’ve found meaning in your life, you don’t want to go back. You want to go forward. You want to see more, do more. You can’t wait until sixty-five…”
“Dying is only one thing to be sad over…living unhappily is something else”
“Dead ends a life, not a relationship”
“Don’t hold on too long, but don’t let go too soon. Find a balance”
“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in”
“Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something else”
“Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others”
“We need to forgive ourselves for all the things we didn’t do’ all the things we should have done. You can’t get stuck on the regrets of what should have happened”
“If you’re always battling against getting old, you’re always going to be unhappy, because it will happen anyhow”
