“11 Favourite Quotes From The Book Tuesdays With Morrie By Mitch Albom”

Hi! Today, I will be sharing my favourite quotes from the book “Tuesdays With Morrie”. I still can remember, it was one of the books I was assigned to read for an English class back in college and I honestly enjoyed it so much and probably one of the greatest books that I’ve ever read. However, it was very shocking for me to read some reviews and they were saying that the book was very sappy and boring. So obvious that they missed the message of the book. 😄✌

Tuesdays With Morrie is a non fiction novel by an American writer, broadcaster, columnist, musician, screenwriter and a best selling author Mitch Albom. The story was later adopted by Thomas Rickman into a TV movie of the same name directed by Mick Jackson. It tells the true story of sociologist Morrie Schwartz and his relationship to his students.

Plot:

It was a heart warming story where the writer (Mitch Albom) became close to his professor (Morrie). He discovered after his graduation that Morrie was dying because of terminal illness ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). He was surprised and saddened so he decided to visit his old professor every Tuesday. Morrie was like teaching Mitch with many great life lessons in general and they were able to build a beautiful friendship (like father and son) until Morrie’s death.

I am just so thankful to Mitch Albom for this book because reading it really inspires me to live life to the fullest. My favourite part was when Morrie was dying and he explained that we should make sure to get a chance to do all the things that we want before we die. The book was so inspiring as it covers all the major things in life that matters. So whether you’re young or old, you have to read Tuesdays With Morrie especially if you are going through loss.

Okey, here are my 11 favourite quotes from the book:

1.Death ends a life, not a relationship.

2. Forgive yourself before you die then forgive others.

3. Love wins. Love always wins.”

4.Learn to detach. Don’t cling to things, because everything is impermanent.”

5.Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hang on too long.”

6.If you don’t have the support and love and caring and concern that you get from a family, you don’t have much at all. Love is so supremely important.”

7. “The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”

8. “As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed as ignorant as you were at twenty-two, you’d always be twenty two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It’s growth. It’s more than the negative that you’re going to die, it’s the positive that you understand that you’re going to die and that you will live a better life because of it.”

9. “We need to forgive ourselves. For all the things we didn’t do. All the things we should have done. You can’t get stuck on the regrets of what should have happened.”

10. “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.”

11. “The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love and to let it come in.”

That’s all for today. Which one did you like the most? Thank you for reading.

“15 Favourite Quotes From The Book It Ends With Us By Colleen Hoover”

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I last posted here. I’ve been trying to write something new but I just can’t concentrate because these past few days have been really hard on me. Many things have happened. However, I’m back so it means that everything’s okay now.

So today, I will be sharing my favourite quotations from the book that I’ve read a couple of months ago. Perhaps, you are already familiar with Colleen Hoover so no need for me to give an introduction about her. I actually have read six of her books and all were really amazing but It Ends With Us is my favourite so far. This is not your typical romance read because the twist in the story is unexpected and thrilling.

Anyway, I have been listing down these quotes when I was still reading the book. As I’ve said in my previous post that I love collecting good quotes that inspires me because it is something I know that I can read whenever I need it. So today, I decided to share with all of you- hoping that these quotes fromIt Ends With Us” will inspire you as well.2018-03-19-17-26-17-811.jpg

1. “All humans make mistakes. What determines a person’s character aren’t the mistakes we make. It’s how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.”

2. “I feel like everyone fakes who they really are, when deep down we’re all equal amounts of screwed up. Some of us are just better at hiding it than others.”

3. No one is exclusively bad, nor is anyone exclusively good. Some are just forced to work harder at suppressing the bad.”

4. I think that’s one of the biggest signs a person has matured—knowing how to appreciate things that matter to others, even if they don’t matter very much to you.

5. Preventing your heart from forgiving someone you love is actually a hell of a lot harder than simply forgiving them.

6. Sometimes, even grown women need their mother’s comfort so we can just take a break from having to be strong all the time.

7. It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.

8. Life is a funny thing. We only get so many years to live it, so we have to do everything we can to make sure those years are as full as they can be. We shouldn’t waste time on things that might happen someday, or maybe even never.

9. My heart is pounding like it wants out. I wish I could give it a way out. I’d set the mother-fucker free right now if I could.”

10. In the future, if by some miracle you ever find yourself in the position to fall in love again . . . fall in love with me.

11. I don’t know how he calmed me down without even talking, but he did. Some people just have a calming presence about them and he’s one of those people.

12. We are all just people who sometimes do bad things.”

13. There have been times I’ve wondered if I could ever allow myself to trust a guy. For the most part, I hate men because the only example I have is my father. But spending all this time with Atlas is changing me. Not in a huge way, I don’t think. I still distrust most people. But Atlas is changing me enough to believe that maybe he’s an exception to the norm.”

14. And when you love someone, seeing them sad also makes you sad.”

15. “I think about how sometimes, no matter how convinced you are that your life will turn out a certain way, all that certainty can be washed away with a simple change in tide.

“Written Quotes: Love Yourself & Be You”

Hi lovely people! So I had a get together with my college batchmates at one of the very famous coffee shops here in the Philippines. We were very happy because we finally had a bonding even just for an hours. We talked and had a sharing about our plans. Some are planning to go abroad, others are preparing for the Civil Service exam this coming March and few are already teaching in ESL– it is a Korean school.

BA ENGLISH is one of the few courses that has no board exam so majority of our batch are having their educational units so they can take the board exam for teachers while others are having already their masterals.

Anyway, the get together helped and inspired me to actually continue on writing. They were able to inspired me with their own kind words. It’s true that doing what you’re passionate about makes you more happier. To be honest, I was planning to stop myself from writing because people have always something to say and it gets annoying sometimes. But then I realized, it doesn’t actually matter what people say. PERIOD!

So okay, without further ado, here are another batch of quotes/quotations that I’ve been writing last night.

That’s all for today. I hope you enjoyed reading all the quotes. Let me know what you think by commenting below.

“Random Quotes: Part VII”

Hi! It’s been a while since my last post about this topic. To give you a recap, random quotes is another series of my blog that talks about my own written quotes. It’s “random” because I don’t have a particular topic and that is because I just want to write whatever I want. That, I am so happy because I finally had some time to sit down and write about quotes/quotations. But before we proceed, I wanted first to give a little update about what has gone with myself personally.

I haven’t been in the mountains for a month now. You probably knew that I love hiking so I really need to get back on it. I discovered my love for the outdoors (which I really miss) when I was with my friend way back 2014 and they invited me to have a picnic in Mount Yangbew. It’s the first mountain that I’ve ever climbeb which is just a 30-45 minutes hike and is one of the famous hiking destinations here in Benguet. I already posted an article about this mountain- click here if you want to read. Anyway, I just can’t wait for the start again and so excited if which mountain, Mount Tabayoc maybe? Nah! For sure, I will be sharing here on my blog so watch out for that.

Okey! let’s now proceed, here are the quotes/quotations that I’ve been writing these past few days.

That’s it for today. I just hope that you enjoyed reading it and if you did, comment and let me know. ❤

Till then,
