Tuesdays with Morrie

8.09.2014

Here's another book review. And this shall be included as my July favorite. I am trying to do things quite differently now, rather than just giving my verdict on each book, I will also include a reflection of mine at the end of the post, so if you are interested, read them as well :)


Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. 

Lovely. and Inspiring.


It is a memoir by Mitch Albom about his professor, Morrie who was dying from ALS.
You can read up about the summary of the book just by Googling them, or here 

hmm, lemme see how should i put this in words. 
You see, it discusses a lot of issues, be it relationships, dreams or family. 
and each chapter touches my heart. 
Every time I finish a chapter, I would stop, breath and reflect on it before moving on. 
I look forward to read about the next issue that's about to be brought up.

My verdict? 
9/10 
Because there is too much to be absorbed. 
I need to read them over again. 

This is the first time I need to fold on the corners of the pages for the quotes I find meaningful and impactful. 

Here's one.
"You have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it. Create your own."

Have you ever met great teachers? Who has been inspiring you? Taught you lessons that is very important, not the academic kind of lessons, but real life lessons? 

I remember once, during high school when we were required to write up a weekly diary and hand it over to our teachers. I have this, "habit" of excessively using the word "I" when discussing about issues. 
She replied
"Did you notice you have excessively use the word "I". Sometimes you have to stand in the shoes of others in order to understand things, don't be self-centered, you can't control everything."

Yes, I remember that until today, thank you. :)
