tuesday with Morrie by Mitch Albom

As you can see the cover says , "Bestseller that changed millions of lives". I, beign one of the last person seen reading autobiographies , agree to this. It might not have changed my life, but it indeed changed some of my thoughts.

This is one book that I have bought and gifted most number of times. And every time I read it, I feel I start a new page in ym life. I actually read it evey time I am in need of answers. It gives you a fresh approach and a wise perspective to any sphere and phase in your life.

Synopsis :
Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague.  Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it.

For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.

Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded, and the world seemed colder.  Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom for your busy life today the way you once did when you were younger?

Mitch Albom had that second chance.  He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man's life.  Knowing he was dying, Morrie visited with Mitch in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college.  Their rekindled relationship turned into one final "class": lessons in how to live.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together, through which Mitch shares Morrie's lasting gift with the world.

Quotes from the book:

Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them too-even when you are in the dark.

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.

The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it.

"Death ends a life, not a relationship."

We should be looking at our potential, stretching ourselves into everything we can be come.
