To be a moving story, the book Tuesdays with Morrie is excellent. Mitch Albom, the author, is a famous sports columnist and writer, Morrie called “coach” by Mitch, was his professor, not only in college, but also in his whole life. In this book, Morrie had ALS, and Mitch visited Morrie every Tuesday to talk about life, death, love, culture and so on in Morrie’s last year. They called each other “Tuesday People”. When my friend told me that it’s a real story, I was shocked. There are so many impressive sentences that touch my heart a lot.
Morrie is a small old man, who always looks at your eyes straightly when you’re talking. After he had ALS, a brutal, unforgiving illness, he continued teaching. Mitch was his last student. I really love the mantra “Love each other or perish” which is mentioned several times in the story. When they were talking about family, Morrie told us this poem. I think this is the most important thing not only for Morrie and Mitch, but also for us.
When I was on the bus home today, there were two girls talking about relationship. What they talked about, briefly, people won’t have happy life or love without a house and a car in Beijing, even in China. Maybe this is reality, maybe every young girl is looking for a man with both house and car to be married, maybe if there is no roof over our head, there would be no love being developed into marriage. It’s too pathetic to think like this. Marriage is not the thing which can be exchanged for money, a house or a car. I hope my man could love me and hold my hand, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer forever. I believe that two people who love each other could make themselves happiness, just like Morrie and Charlotte. I love the old things in Morrie’s room, they show that only money don’t means happy marriage.
There are lots of sentences that I love so much, "Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others." "Death ends a life, not a relationship." "Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live."…I would write down thousands of words about this touching story. I have recommended it to my 4 friends already. I wish those impressive sentences in this story could influence them, too.
Thank my English teacher recommended Tuesdays with Morrie to me, it really touch my heart.
