An old man, a young man, and life’s greatest lesson.
‘TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE’ is the autobiographical story of Mitch Albom, an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie’s appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life.

“‘I was unprepared for how moving and powerful ‘TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE’ turned out to be... On this ground, the flowers of humanity grow.”
- The New York Post
Without love, we’re like birds with broken wings.
Forgive everyone, everything.
You are not a wave – you are part of the ocean.
Accept what you are able to do and what you are not able to do. Accept the past as past, without denying or discarding it.
A leaf grows most colourful just before it dies.
Death ends a life, not a relationship.
Accept who you are; and revel in it.
The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.
Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hold on too long.
