Quotes

Books

Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

  1. Death doesn’t just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.
  2. Each affects the other, and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one.
  3. Parents rarely let go of their children, so children let go of them. They move on. They move away. The moments that used to define them – a mother’s approval, a father’s nod – are covered by moments of their own accomplishments. It is not until much later, as the skin sags and the heart weakens, that children understand; their stories, and all their accomplishments, sit atop the stories of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones, beneath the waters of their lives.
  4. This is the greatest gift God can give you: to understand what happened in your life. To have it explained. It is the peace you have been searching for ― Meniti Bianglala
  5. All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time.

Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

  1. Death ends a life, not a relationship.
  2. Well, for one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We’re teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it. Create your own. Most people can’t do it.
  3. So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
  4. there are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don’t respect the other person, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don’t know how to compromise, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can’t talk openly about what goes on between you, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don’t have a common set of values in life, you’re gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.’ – Morrie Schwartz
  5. I give myself a good cry if I need it, but then I concentrate on all good things still in my life.
  6. This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It’s knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.
  7. If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down on you anyhow. And if you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.
  8. You see, you closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too–even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling

Mitch Albom, For one more Day

  1. Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever? If so, then you know you can go your whole life collecting days, and none will outweigh the one you wish you had back.

 

Mitch Albom, Have a Little Faith: a True Story

  1. “When a baby comes into the world, its hands are clenched, right? Like this?” He made a fist. “Why? Because a baby not knowing any better, wants to grab everything, to say the whole world is mine. But when an old person dies, how does he do so? With his hands open. Why? Because he has learned his lesson.” “What lesson?” I asked. He stretched open his empty fingers. “We can take nothing with us.”

Mitch Albom, Have a Little Faith: a True Story

  1. In your acknowledgments,” said Pauley, “you say, ‘Finally and firstly, anything created by my heart or hand is from God, by God, through God, and with God.’ And I think that’s the closest I’ve heard you speak about God yet.”

  2. “In my worldview, it’s not right for me to finish something and not acknowledge that it wasn’t just me and my mind doing it,” said Albom. “Be selfish.”
