1st rd Period Morrie Schwartz's Aphorisms “When you are in bed, you are dead”- Morrie Schwartz. Morrie Schwartz uses the notation of death being seen as internal sleep. Sleep if photographed looks like death. In addition, when you are in bed sleeping or what not, you are missing the wonders of the day. He plays with the words as to say that if you are not doing nothing, you are just like the deceased 6 feet under. Living to me is seeing the world or making a difference and not jus laying around. The opposite of living is death and to me is laying around. “If you don’t have the support and love and caring and concern that you get from a family, you don’t have much at all.”- Morrie Schwartz Everything about you starts at home and within the family. Your family is the foundation of the tower that is you. Without that base, you tumble down into nothing like a wrong move when playing Jenga. In addition, family is your biggest and most supportive member of #TeamYOU. “Accept the past as the past without denying it or discarding it.”-Morrie Schwartz The past is the past. Period. You can’t change the past no matter what. It is common for people to deny and discard the past. Don’t! It is the ignorant thing to do. Instead accept it, embrace it and learn from it. “Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”- Morrie Schwartz Many people coast through life without living to the fullest. People automatically think that they will wake up to see another day, when there is a 50% chance they won’t. In addition, when near their death bed they try to start living (in most cases it be too late) when they should had been doing that all along. When you learn how to die, you learn to spend every day as your last, stop worrying and take risks. “Learn to forgive yourself and others”-Morrie Schwartz Basically Morrie is saying, don't beat yourself up on past situations and forgive others for their mistakes. In result of forgiving, you can move forward in life and unbound yourself. Forgiving erases the hurt from your soul and heart. "You are not a wave you are apart of the ocean."- Morrie Schwartz We are part of something bigger than ourselves. In fact, we are classified scientifically. The classes we and other organisms are categorized in are Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species. Kingdom is the largest and species is the smallest. "Accept what you can do and what you are not able to do"- Morrie Schwartz You see people trying to do things that they know they are unable to to do. Instead of trying, you should accept it. Trying will result in major or minor consquences. For instance, people with bad backs try to do the matrix. Instead of accepting what they can't do it, they try to do it and make the condition of their back worse. Other examples can be seen on MTV's Ridiculousness. "Death ends a life, not a reletionship."- Morrie Schwartz Death ends life on Earth. It have a tendencey of taking our loved ones. However, death cannot end the reletionship you have with the loved one death took. The relationship you and the deceased have will live forever. They will always be there with you. In the end, you will be reuntited together and have a stronger reletionship over time.
