Tuesdays with Morrie
“There is no such thing as “too late” in life”, said Morrie. Morrie believed if a person is living it should have all the will power to be able to keep going. No matter the sickness, disease, injury, or disability it shouldn’t stop someone but try to help others. A lot of key points happen in the book between Morrie, Mitch, the media, the ALS sickness, Connie, Charlotte, and their conversations every Tuesday. Morrie didn’t like to teach his psychology class through the book but through experience and life. When Mitch approach his first class with his teacher it activated to be a game changer. When Morrie became ...view middle of the document...
Throughout the conversations Mitch couldn’t believe how much life Morrie still had in him until the very end. Seeing day by day how worst the disease had broken down his body; Mitch maintain in awe. For this reason only, Mitch finally cried in front of Morrie knowing he was going to lose a great friend, professor, coach, and inspirer. He let Morrie’s love and affection get inside his life.
In addition, Morrie knew his days on daily Earth were up but that served just the beginning. “The truth is once you learn how to die, you learn how to live”, stated Morrie. Life ended once the ALS hit the beating heart of Morrie’s but once Morrie knew about it for some reason he wanted to keep helping others. He didn’t want life to pass by on, he sees people walk a meaningless life and complain about their life because of the money they don’t have or the car and house either. No, that is not what life is about; touching a human body soul by making them cries is a success. Morrie believe crying for just one minute a day can make life so much easier for everyone.

Even Morrie said old people in retirement homes weren’t happy when they inherited richness because their own family didn’t want them around anymore. Though they got money all the time but they missed the love or affection towards them and that just made them bitter. Dying is the best way to exceed expectations even though it could have been done during their lifespan when it was expected to be done.
Reading this book serve truly worthwhile even though I’m not a huge reading fan. It showed what life really truly meant to be without the unnecessary things in it. The book opened my eyes on lot of points that embodies my future basically. Like how when I have a job; do it because I love it not for the title or money. I see how Morrie loved his job he could of done it for free; his main goal sustain to teach his students life isn’t all about you but others. Once helping others in their life it can impact the life of the own person in many ways unexplainable. For example, the way Connie was aiding Morrie once he couldn’t do anything, she didn’t have to do those things but she cared about Morrie later on in life she would be paid back. It wouldn’t hurt to share your thoughts to others because it gives a warm feeling inside that trusting in others can lead them to help me anything I want. Lastly, accepting when...
