tuesdays with morrie-mitch albom

  1. Love is the only rational act.
  2. Tension of opposites.
  3. We’ve had thirty-five years of friendship. You don’t need speech or hearing to feel that.
  4. “What will you do?”
  5. Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.
  6. Love each other or perish.
  7. How we feel lonely, sometimes to the point of tears, but we don’t let those tears come because we are not supposed to cry.
  8. Turn on the faucet. Wash yourself with the emotion. It won’t hurt you. It will only help.
  9. Same for loneliness: you let go, let the tears flow, feel it completely—but eventually be able to say, “All right, that was my moment with loneliness. I’m not afraid of feeling lonely, but now I’m going to put that loneliness aside and know that there are other emotions in the world, and I’m going to experience them as well.”
  10. What she mostly wanted, he learned, was the same thing many people want—someone to notice she was there.
  11. As you grow, you learn more.
  12. If you’re always battling against getting older, you’re always going to be unhappy, because it will happen anyhow.
  13. “Fate succumbs many a species: one alone jeopardises itself.” W.H. Auden, Morrie’s favorite poet
  14. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship.
  15. If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down at 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.
