I just finished the book lend by a friend. Tuesdays with Morrie is story about an old man, a young man, and life’s greatest lesson. Written by Mitch Albom, who was also the author of ‘The Five People you Meet in Heaven’ and For One More Day.
Here’s an excerpt from the book.
[Morrie] – Have I told you about the tension of opposites?
[Mitch] – The tension of opposites?
[Morrie] – Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something else. Something hurts you, yet you know it shouldn’t. You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take anything for granted.
[Morrie]– A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle.”
[Mitch] – Sounds like a wrestling match,
[Morrie]– A wrestling match. [He laughs]. Yes, you could describe life that way.
[Mitch]– So which side wins?
[Morrie] – Which side wins? He smiles at Mitch, the crinkled eye, the crooked teeth.
[Morrie] – Love wins. Love always wins.
