While he was an undergrad, Mitch absolutely loved Morrie Schwartz's college courses - he took every class that professor taught.
"You know, Mitch, now that I'm dying, I've become much more interesting to people."
ALS is like a lit candle: it melts your nerves and leaves your body a pile of wax.So, Mitch (on an impulse) decides to visit Morrie one last time...and that one last time turned into something else entirely.
The class met on Tuesdays. It began after breakfast. The subject was The Meaning of Life. It was taught from experience.Over the course of a couple of months, Mitch reconnects with Morrie and in the process, learns the last great lesson from his college professor.
"Everyone knows they're going to die," he said again, "but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently."Wow - what a book.
