Tuesdays with Morrie
Transcript of Tuesdays with Morrie
Nicholas Guerzon "Never judge a book by its cover"
"Friendships are forged
through the most unlikely
situations." Morrie: "Let go of
the outside world. Only learn about what matters. " Stephen Hawking
Famous ALS Victim Physicists "Don't let go too soon, but
don't hang on too long." "love and compassion are life's most essential lessons" "ALS may be attacking his body
but not his spirit." "bargaining with Him up there," the first time Mitch has heard him admit that he talks to God.
"Morrie stresses that is is vital to forgive oneself, just as it is vital to forgive others. Once again, he calls himself "lucky" for having the time to forgive himself and others while he is dying. " "Morrie has chosen to be
buried on a hill, beneath a tree" "Morrie will always listen, eventhough
he cannot answer back to Mitch
in his afterlife." "Morrie is to cling to his last moments of life, desperately craving more, he will die having felt in his last minutes only frustration and dissatisfaction." "older people who have enriched their lives with meaningful and satisfying endeavors do not feel the need to return to or relive their youth, the dying should not feel the need for a longer life, given they have lived their life to its fullest extent."
Morrie tells a story he had heard about a wave on the ocean. The wave had felt good until it had realized that, like all the other waves, it would soon crash to shore and be destroyed. Another wave tells him not to be afraid, for all of the small waves are a part of the larger ocean. "Signs of weakness = Lifelines"- Morrie "Perfection in the Average day"- Morrie
