Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
Accept what you are to do and what you are not able to do, Accept the past as past, without denying it or discarding it.
Learn to forgive yourself and to forgive others.
Don’t assume that it is too late to get involve.
The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. And you have to be strong to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it
If you are trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down at you anyhow. And if you are trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.
“If you don’t respect the other person, you are gonna have a lot of trou
ble. If you don’t know how to compromise you are gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can’t talk openly about what goes on between you, you are gonna have trouble.”
