In only two days I read a book called Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. I did it in January and only now I remembered to post my favorite quotes from it. Expect a whole other post where I will review it because there is so much to say about it.

For now, just appreciate the quotes I gathered and thought were the most important ones to highlight.

 

Favorite quotes

“Accept what you are able to do and what you are not able to do”; “Accept the past as past, without denying it or discarding it”; “Learn to forgive yourself and to forgive others”; “Don’t assume that it’s too late to get involved.”

“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.”

 

“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”

 

“You see,” he said to the girl, “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 trust them, too – even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling.”

 

“the culture doesn’t encourage you to think about such things until you’re about to die. We’re so wrapped up with egotistical things, career, family, having enough money, meeting the mortgage, getting a new car, fixing the radiator when it breaks – we’re involved in trillions of little acts just to keep going. So we don’t get into the habit of standing back and looking at our lives and saying, Is this all? Is this all I want? Is something missing?”

 

“Everyone knows they’re going to die,” he said again, “but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently.”

 

“Once you learn how to die, you learn out to live.”

 

“Without love, we are birds with broken wings.”

“It’s very simple. As you grow, 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, it’s also positive that you understand you’re going to die, and that you live a better life because of it.”

 

“Do the kings of things that come from the heart. When you do, you won’t be dissatisfied, you won’t be envious, you won’t be longing for somebody else’s things. On the contrary, you’ll be overwhelmed with what comes back.”

 

“love is how you stay alive.”

 

“People haven’t found meaning in their lives, so they’re running all the time looking for it. They think the next car, the next house, the next job. Then they find those things are empty, too, and they keep running.”

 



Thank you for reading and…

  2. Wow omg these are such amazing quotes ❤😍 I need to read this beautiful book. I loved the one about aging and dying because it’s just so true. We learn and grow in life. I agree that love is the most important in life rather than your career, how much things you own or how much money you gain. We are here to love each other.
