someone is reading some wonderful wonderful books lately :)

quotes by miss lee from the book "tuesdays with morrie" by mitch albom.

" many people walk around with a meaningless life. they seem half asleep even when they are busy doing things that they think are important. this is because they are chasing the wrong thing. the way you devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to the comunity around you and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning." (pg43)

"the most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love and let it come in." (pg52)

"You have to find what's good and true and beautiful in your life as it is now. Looking back makes you competitive. And, age is not a competitive issue." (p.120)

"Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others." (p.164) "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." (p.166)

"There is no formula to relationships. They have to be negotiated in loving ways, with room for both parties, what they want and what they need, what they can do and what their life is like." (p.177,178) "...there are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don't respect the other person, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don't know how to compromise, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can't talk openly about what goes on between you, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don't have a common set of values in life, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike." (p.149)

"do the kind of things that comes from the heart. when you do, you wont (be?) dissatisfied, you wont be envious, you wont be longing for somebody else's things. on the contrary, you'll be overwhelmed with what comes back."
