Tuesdays with Morrie - Mitch Albom
“An old man, a young man and life’s greatest lesson’
A true story, I read this one a few summers ago with my partner at the time, so easy to read, very enjoyable filled with many of life simple lessons.
Its based on a series of interviews with Morrie Schwartz, his profession from his days in University, who’s dying of Lou Gehrig disease.
To summarize what I feel is the main message of the book, I chose the quote where Morrie tells Mitch the way to find satisfaction in life. “Devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”
