tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson by Mitch Albom is one of the books I would like to read again and again. If I’m fortunate enough to have some time to say good bye and reflect upon life before my death as Morrie then this is one of the books I would like to read. One of the aphorisms in this novel that resonated with me is: “Death ends a life, not a relationship.” Wow, that’s profound.
I envy teacher-student relationship between Mitch Albom and his coach, Morrie Schwartz. Morrie offers profound lessons on detachment, forgiveness, love, marriage, money, family, aging, death, culture and so much more. This requires numerous readings in order to absorb the teachings. My favorite story in the book is about the wave that is concerned about crashing and becoming nothing. The lesson for this individualistic wave is that it is a part of the ocean and not a wave.
