Tuesdays With Morrie Essay , Mitch Albom
Tuesdays with Morrie, written by Mitch Albom is a story of the love between a man and his college professor, Morrie Schwartz. This true story captures the compassion and wisdom of a man who only knew good in his heart. A man who lived his life to the fullest up until the very last breath of his happily fulfilled life. It is a story of a special bond of friendship that was lost for many years, but never forgotten and simply picked up again at a crucial time of both Morrie’s and Mitch’s lives.
When Morrie learned that he had only a few months to live with the deadly disease of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, Morrie began the last class of his life with Mitch – life’s greatest lesson.
Throughout the last fourteen weeks of Morrie’s life, Mitch met with him every Tuesday to learn and understand all of the wisdom and lessons of life that were within Morrie. The weekly routine consisted of lunch and lecture. These meetings included discussions on everything from the world when you enter it to the world when you say goodbye.
From the relationship that these men had with each, a love is revealed like no other love resembles. This is a love of friendship and of respect. Such a bond between people is difficult to achieve.
Their relationship consists of an “unembarrassed love” that is constantly present.
Morrie Schwartz was a man of great wisdom who loved and enjoyed to see and experience a simplicity of life, something beyond life’s most challenging and unanswered mysteries. From Morrie, we learn that life is most happily experienced when enjoyed and fulfilled to its highest ability. Morrie shares this with Mitch in the last days of his life and these great lessons will be carried and practiced throughout Mitch’s life.
——————————–What I learned that was new for me———————————
After reading Tuesdays with Morrie I felt a sense of discovery. Morrie Schwartz was a man that touched the lives of many.
He will always be remembered for his sincerity and his compassion for life and for love. The lessons that Morrie loved to teach were of his own experience with life. These great lessons were full of wisdom and love and they came deep from within Morrie.
I enjoyed reading this book by Mitch Albom and I am also envious of his experience with this incredible man. This book was on the Bestseller’s List over the summer and it will continue to be read by many others who share the inspiration that I absorbed as a result of reading this book.
I learned many lessons of life while reading this book.
There were lessons of love, of family, of relationships, of education and many more topics and issues that were very touching to the heart. By reading this book I learned that wisdom comes with experience and it only inspired me to anticipate the lessons of life that I know I will come to learn as I live my own life.
——————————–How the book affected me personally——————————
Tuesdays with Morrie affected me personally in many different ways. The simplest words that were uttered by Morrie could affect a person in more ways than one could explain. The “unembarrassed love” that Morrie shared with Mitch to me was incredible. The way that Morrie expressed his feelings and his love for people is amazing and is most often very rare.
I think that the one major part of the book that affected me personally was the way that Mitch went to see Morrie after about seven years of being apart. After finishing high school, Mitch continued his life without seeing Morrie, but not without thinking of him on very many occasions. When Mitch saw Morrie on television explaining on a news program about his life threatening disease, Mitch went to see him shortly afterward. This is not often that people that once had a strong relationship with each other will reunite after such an extended period of time, and when it does it is a wonderful reunion.
