Tuesdays With Morrie Aphorisms - Rochelle Park School District

Tuesdays With Morrie Aphorisms By: Olivia Vladyka Accept what you are able to do and what you are not able to do. (p. 18) This quote has taught me to stay true to what I am. I wont struggle to be someone I can never be, I will put my effort into what I am capable of. For example, I am not very athletic so accept that I wont be on a sports team, but I do well in school so I try to excel in my

classes. Everyone has their own unique abilities that determine their potential. I will never be a track star but I could get As on my report card. Accept the past as past, without denying it or discarding it. (pg. 18) No one can live in the past. I learned that we have to learn from the past to keep from repeating it, but dont dwell on it. No one can move forward in life if they live in

the past. The only way to live without regrets is to accept the past and work to make a better future. The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.(p. 52) Love is the most important part of life. People should believe more in love than money or power. I learned through the book that I need to accept love and also love others. Love can

provide support in the most difficult of times, just like it did for Morrie. I want to surround myself with people who would be my support system. Sometimes you cant believe what you see; you have to believe what you feel. (p. 61) In some situations, you have to believe in feelings instead of what you see. For example, Morrie says to believe in love over objects. Emotions are more

important than gifts and purchases. I believe that feeling loved and cared for is more important than being rich. I value my friends and family more than I value my clothes or my phone. Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live. (pg. 82) Accepting death leads to a meaningful life. People cannot spend their lives worrying about how they will die. Everyone dies

eventually; people should live everyday like its their last to have a valuable and happy life. I dont want to spend my life worrying about how I will die, I understand that I will so I can live a more meaningful life. Dont cling to things, because everything is impermanent. (p. 103) I always stress about things that wont last forever. Everything, relationships, where you live,

where you go to school, and even your life; they are all temporary. Dont rely on one situation too long; it is bound to change. Nothing will last forever. Love each other or perish. (p. 149) Love is the only thing rational in the world. After death the only way to stay alive is through loving and happy memories. This quote taught me that while life may end, memories will live

forever in people that Ive met. Love can keep a person alive long after they are dead. Dont let go too soon, but dont hang on too long. (p. 162) The novel discusses the idea that after a certain point life is not worth living. This quote taught me to live as long and happily as I can, but when my quality of life has significantly dropped it is time to let go. Unconsciously breathing

through a vent is not a life worth living. The quote does not mean that people should not grow old, but rather people should be able to determine the quality of life they want to live. Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others. (p. 164) Forgiving others will help you to move on from the past. For example, if someone I was fighting with died I would never

have a chance to forgive them. People also need to forgive themselves, they cannot go through life regretting what happened in the past. Forgiving makes peace with yourself and others. Death ends a life, not a relationship. (p. 174) The memory of those close to us is kept alive through love. Some of my relatives have died, but that doesnt mean I no longer love

them. Love goes on forever. Charlotte will still love Morrie after he is dead. Love is eternal even though life is not.
