A lesson a day on life and its different phases, and he chooses the day to be Tuesday. Every Tuesday he gets to learn a new lesson; a new chapter of life unfolds while his professor is counting the last few days of his life. The 'Tuesdays With Morrie' is a memoir written by Mitch Albom about a few, but valuable interactions with his professor, Morrie Schwartz, during the latter's dying days. Every chapter of the book is a lesson that Morrie has taught Mitch during their meetings on Tuesdays. They talk about love, life, career, relationship and various other aspects of life. It is one of the most emotional yet inspirational works of Mitch Albom.
Lessons On Tuesdays
'Death ends a life, not a relationship', Morrie tells Mitch. Mitch, a successful newspaper sports columnist, meets his sociology professor Morrie Schwartz after 16 years. 78-year old Morrie suffering from ALS still remembers his student in the first sight. Seeing Morrie in such a condition is heartbreaking for Mitch, and because of a newspaper strike, Mitch gets to visit Morrie every Tuesday and share some time together. It is during these 14 Tuesdays that Morrie expresses his valuable views on acceptance, happiness, openness, love, values and communication. The conversations are intriguing, emotional and educational. It talks the hard facts of life and also gives a new perspective to look at life. The book shows the bond between Mitch and Morrie, which many of us must have shared with one person in our lives; maybe our grandparent, parent, teacher, friend or neighbour. It is disheartening knowing what Mitch had to lose towards the end of the book, but the lessons that he learned from Morrie are precious, marvellous and worth sharing with everyone, just the way he did writing this book.
