The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning” –Tuesdays With Morrie, Mitch Albom
Initial Thoughts: I had found this book lying in a heap of various novels at a book fair at my local library. I had seen Tuesdays With Morrie on the Goodreads list “Books you have to read before you die.” As I am an absolute overachiever, I am currently trying to read all the books on that list in spite of interest. I had no idea what Tuesdays With Morrie was about or that it is a true story, I only knew that I should read it according to Goodreads.
Tuesdays With Morrie documents the conversations between a young man, Mitch, and his professor, Morrie, during their meetings every Tuesdays. But these were not ordinary meetings. Morrie was slowly dying of ALS and wished to pass on his life lessons to his beloved student from the perspective of a dying man. Morrie imparts his wisdom of his life experience in this thought-provoking memoir.
