Tuesdays with Morrie
Project "Sometimes you can't believe what you see;
you have to believe what you feel." (pg. 61)
-Morrie Schwartz "If you've found meaning in your life you don't want to go back. You want to go forward. You want to see more, do more. You can't wait until sixty-five." (pg. 118) -Morrie Schwartz Seven life lessons
by which I live by "I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry."
-Unknown "When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I wrote down 'happy'! They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life." -John Lennon "You can close your eyes to the things you don't want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel." -Johnny Depp "Life is too short and unpredictable not to live it exactly as you please" -Unknown By: Andy Buttrum Life Lessons From Tuesdays With Morrie "This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good." -Unknown "If you didn't hear it with your own ears, or see if with your own eyes, don't make it up with your small mind and share it with your big mouth."
-Unkown "Never go to sleep angry. Because you never know if you or the person you're mad at will wake up the next morning. Always forgive someone. Because you never know if you'll talk to them again. Things happen. Get over it. Always forgive. But it's better than knowing you'll never get to say any or I love you again." -Unknown "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" (pg. 43) -Morrie Schwartz In my opinion, this quote is trying to say that you should live life the way that you want to live it. If you are content with the way that you have lived your life, then you will not want to go back, but only move forward. If you have lived it to your highest ability, then you cannot wait to be older to experience what the future will be like. In life we are always going by what we see and not how we feel. In my opinion, I think that it is important to go with what you believe. We can't always go by what we see or hear because sometimes it may not be true. Always follow your heart and do the things that you want to do. Everyone takes life for granted. I always try and live like it is my last day alive. I always try and treat others the way that I want to be treated. I always try and be as nice as I can to everyone because I never know if that is their last day alive. Anything is possible at anytime anyday. I never want my last words to someone be hurtful or mean. I always try and make up with whomever even if they are in the wrong. Know matter where I am, or what I am doing, I always try and stay positive and happy. Of course we will always have down points, but 95% of the time you will see me happy or being goofy. Holding grudges and being mad will get you nowhere in life. Life is to short to be anything but happy. As we grow older, we learn that drama is just pointless. Of course we will have it everywhere in our lives, but why spread rumors? More than half of the time rumors are not true, so why make up something that can hurt someone else? I try to live by this quote meaning that if I did not see it with my own eyes, or hear it with my own ears, then there is no need to share it with my big mouth. As senior year is approaching, I find myself thinking of old memories. I never knew that looking back on all of the silly jokes, late night adventures, road trips, or even school days would make me cry. Being a teenager means learning and experiencing many different things. As many different things seem to be at a dead end, we somehow find our way back up. As we grow older, we wil look back what think "what the heck was I thinking?" Many people seem to always be stuck in the past. What they don't realize is that everyday is a new day. We often hold grudges against people that have done us wrong. In this quote, I find that you can live each day doing something you love, or you can spend that day doing something that you hate. Its your choice to do what you want each and every day. In my opinion, we can close our eyes at any point we do not want to see something, but we cannot close our hearts to things that we do not want to feel. As we grow, we will experience numerous paths. Some may not go through the experiences that others may go through, but that makes you who you are today. My parents divorce would be a great example of this quote. This would have to be one of my favorite quotes. As we go through high school, we feel that we should be doing what our friends are doing. I feel that we should each live our lives the way that we want to live it, not how others want us to. We should do things that make us happy and do the things that we want to, not how others want us to. In my opinion, you should always be happy with your friends and family. You should always give them your 100%. The way that most can make themselves happy is to give their all to their friends, family, and others around them.
