This book made me cry.
Not many books can make me cry if i’m being honest but Tuesdays with Morrie made me cry for hours because after crying at the actual book I realised that it’s based on a true story and cried again. The content of the book is so insightful and the fact that such a person existed is so hopeful. The actual book revolves around Mitch and his visits every Tuesday to his old teacher Morrie’s house. Morrie now has ALS and the book shows him giving out his life advice while slowly exhibiting the symptoms of ALS. Despite the increasingly hard to death with symptoms Morrie’s brain is as sharp as ever throughout and provides food for thought. I always love books that leave a lasting impression on me and this book definitely did that..I was thinking about the things Morrie said for ages afterwards.
I cannot sum up the words to describe the book. Just read it and thank me later.
“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.”
