Book Review

Name:Tuesdays with Morrie
Author:Mitch Albom
I liked the book a lot. It is so beautifully written, discussing the basic questions of life.A non-fiction story of a professor and a student .The professor is suffering from ALS(amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and  is soon  going to die. But he enjoys  his death and tries to be motivated as much as he can. They  talk about  world, feeling sorry for oneself,regrets,death,family,emotion,the  fear of aging,money,marriage,culture and forgiveness.The answers to each of these questions  is very thought  provoking.
I have written down the questions and  will give it  a thought from time to time. But one thing is clear  every one in  his life comes across a  Morrie  who  shows you the  way and leaves it to you to make a choice.
Some lines from the book were really wonderful and so i quote a few of them here
“Dying is only thing to be sad over , unhappily is something else.So many of the people who come to visit me are unhappy”
“‘ But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely. You know what pain is. You know what love is. You know what grief is. And only then can you say, ‘All right.’ I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.”
“Have  you ever really had a teacher ?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 teacher ,you will always find  your way back.Sometimes it is only in your head .Sometimes it is right  along their beds.”
