Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie is a book of remembrance of lifetime lessons
Sometimes it happens that we find a book that has the power to change us and answer all the unasked questions. Tuesdays with Morrie is one of those books by Mitch Albom which takes us to the world of a man, who is about to die.
The author writes about all the lessons he received from his college professor, Morrie Schwartz, who was suffering from a serious disease. One of the most beautiful messages conveyed in the book by Morrie is that one should live life as if it were the last day.
The best-selling author writes in the book about the decline of his professor’s health and all the time he spent during Morrie’s last days. The conversations happened on Tuesdays and covered every topic between life and death.
It is a book that guides us that forgiving others is necessary, but it is also important to forgive ourselves. Yes, it is hard to forgive others, but it is harder to forgive ourselves. When we hold grudges in life, we also hold reasons to be happy in life.
Released in 1997, the book would celebrate its 25th anniversary soon, and it is one of those books which would remain relevant in every time and period. Tuesdays with Morrie teach us to lead a meaningful life instead of living without a purpose.
