90/366: tuesdays.with.morrie


As I was hanging around Segi Damansara for the day, I decided to reread this book I brought along.

I actually wrote down some lines from the book that impacted me, literally.

Here are a few:

  • And I suppose tapes, like photographs and videos, are a desperate attempt to steal something from death's suitcase. (p.63)  
  • "You know what that reflects? Unsatisfied lives. Unfulfilled lives. Lives that haven't found meaning. Because 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." (p. 118)   
  • There is no formula to relationships. They have to be negotiated in loving ways, with room for both parties, what they want and what they need, what they can do and what their life is like." (p. 178)  
  • None of us can undo what we've done, or relive at a life already recorded. But if Professor Morris Schwartz taught me anything at all, it was this: there is no such thing as "too late" in life. He was changing until the day he said good-bye. (p. 190)  
  • Have you ever really had a teacher? (p. 190) One who saw you as a raw but precious thing, a jewel, that with wisdom, could be polished to a proud shine? If you are lucky enough to find your way to such teachers, you will always find your way back. (p. 192) 



Segi Damansara is quite unique.
Tuesdays With Morrie, is really one of the best books ever written, period.
