Quotes from Tuesdays With Morrie
“Tears are okay”
“Accept who you are; and revel in it.”
“The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”
“Life is a series of pulls back and forth… A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. Most of us live somewhere in the middle. A wrestling match…Which side wins? Love wins. Love always wins”
“Detachment doesn’t mean you don’t let the experience penetrate you. On the contrary, you let it penetrate you fully. That’s how you are able to leave it.”
“Maybe death is the great equalizer, the one big thing that can finally make strangers shed a tear for one another”
“We think we don’t deserve love, we think if we let it in we’ll become too soft. But a wise man named Levine said it right. He said.” Love is the only rational act.””
“Love each other or perish” (actually by W.H.Auden, which Morrie quotes)
“Death ends a life, not a relationship. All the love you created is still there. All the memories are still there. You live on- in the hearts of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were here.”
“We put our values in the wrong things. And it leads to very disillusioned lives.”
“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. 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.”
“Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hang on too long.”
“Don’t cling to things because everything is impermanent.”
“How useful it would be to put a daily limit on self pity. Just a few tearful minutes, then on with the day.”
“Love wins, love always wins.”
“There is no such thing as ‘too late’ in life.”
“People are only mean when they are threatened.”
