VENT #8 (MITCH ALBOM – TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE)

“If you hold back on the emotions, if you don’t allow yourself to go all the way through them–you can never get to being detached, you’re too busy being afraid. You’re afraid of the pain, you’re afraid of the grief. You’re afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your heard even, you experience them fully and completely.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie



“Don’t cling to things because everything is impermanent.”
― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie


“Well, for one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We’re teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it. Create your own. Most people can’t do it.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie



“Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do somehing 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.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie


“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. Let it come in. We think we don’t deserve love, we think if we let it in we’ll become too soft. But a wise man named Levin said it right. He said, “Love is the only rational act.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie


“Don’t cling to things, because everything is impermanent… But detachment doesn’t mean you don’t let the experience penetrate you.
On the contrary, you let it penetrate you fully. That’s how you are able to leave it…You’re afraid of the pain, you’re afraid of the grief… But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your head even, you experience them fully and completely.You know what pain is. You know what love is. “All right. I have experienced that emotion. I recognize that emotion. Now I need to detach from that emotion for a moment.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie


“The truth is, part of me is every age. I’m a three-year-old, I’m a five-year-old, I’m a thirty-seven-year-old, I’m a fifty-year-old. I’ve been through all of them, and I know what it’s like. I delight in being a child when it’s appropriate to be a child. I delight in being a wise old man when it’s appropriate to be a wise old man. Think of all I can be! I am every age, up to my own.”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie


“We’re always waiting for something. It starts when you’re a child; sitting in front of the oven waiting for the cookies to bake. It’s knowing that you’ve done everything right and now all you’re waiting on is the reward for your hard work. It’s in your teens, when you’re engrossed in “happily ever after” syndrome – waiting for your prince charming to come and sweep you off your feet and into the sunset. It’s when you’re eighty, slowly opening your eyes and feeling the world engross you in its entirety. Waiting for that moment, the moment where you close your eyes and the pain disappears – waiting for heaven to take you away. Throughout life we’re taught to wait; we are taught patience, love and compassion. We learn that life is about waiting, it’s about staying positive and looking forward to the future, no matter what may come our way.”
