Was there a line from a book that changed your life forever?

I picked up Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom completely by chance. Everywhere I went, I saw it.

I’ve never devoured a book so quickly in my life. This particular line from the book hit me:

“And all the heartfelt things we never get to say to those we love, Morrie said that day.”

From there, I started pondering a lot about life. Self-worth. Legacy.

Who will come to my funeral?

What will they say about me?

What will I be remembered for?

The more I thought about it, the deeper I fell into an invisible black hole.

But who would be there to save me?

What I learned from Morrie:

Beautiful words aren’t only meant for the dead — there’s more room to blossom for those still living.

He taught me to recognize my emotions, practice detachment to better express myself freely and fearlessly.

To compliment someone while I can.

To make meaningful conversations.

To smile even when I don’t feel like it.


Because tomorrow is never guaranteed.
