Tuesdays with Morrie is a true story of the last moments of the life of a great man and a master professor of sociology.
Perhaps the appeal of Tuesdays With Morrie, which topped the list of bestsellers of the year since October 1997, not only in the United States but around the world, is due to the profound implications of the life discussed, such as love, Death, marriage, etc., or maybe its main value is because its story is true.
سهشنبهها با موری داستانی واقعی از آخرین لحظات زندگی یک مرد بزرگ و استاد چیرهدست جامعهشناسیست.
شاید جذابیت کتاب سهشنبهها با موری و قرارگرفتن در صدر جدول پرفروشترین کتابهای سال از اکتبر 1997 تاکنون، نه تنها در آمریکا بلکه در سراسر دنیا، به خاطر مفاهیم عمیقی از زندگیست که تو این کتاب به بحث گذاشته شده، مثل عشق، مرگ، ازدواج و… یا شاید هم ارزش اصلیش به خاطر واقعیبودن داستانشه.
Some attractive parts of the book :
-The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
-One day spent with someone you love can change everything.
-Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you’re not really losing it. You’re just passing it on to someone else.
-“Have I told you about the tension of opposite?” he says.
The tension of opposites?
“Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something 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.
“A tension of opposite, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle.”
Sounds like a wrestling match, I say.
“A wrestling match.” He laughs. “Yes, you describe life that way.”
So which side wins, I ask?
“Which side wins?”
He smiles at me, the crinkled eyes, the crooked teeth.
“Love wins, Love always wins.”
