1. Morrie: In His Own Words By Morrie Schwartz:

· Learn how to live, and you’ll know how to die. Once you know how to die, you know how to live.

· Death ends life, not a relationship.

· Dying is only one thing to be sad over. Living unhappily is something else.

· Everything that gets born dies. The best way to deal with that is to live in a fully conscious, compassionate, loving way. Don’t wait until you’re on your deathbed to recognize that this is the only way to live.

· Maybe the distance between life and death isn’t as great as you think. …Maybe it’s not that great chasm that you always thought it was..maybe it’s only a bridge

· If possible find and practice a spiritual connection…We can explain some of life’s questions scientifically, but I don’t think that is the full picture. I think it is clear some higher power exists. … It is something powerful.

· Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Don’t wait.

· Grieve and mourn for yourself, not once or twice, but again and again.

· Get as much help as you can when you need it.

· When you are utterly frustrated or angry, express these feelings. You don’t have to be nice all the time—just most of the time

· I’m going to die—you are going to die—but I’m also going to live on in some other form.

· The best preparation to live fully is to be prepared to die at any time.

· You’re not a wave; you’re a part of the ocean.

· There’s a bird on your shoulder and every day you ask it, “Is today the day that I die? Am I ready? Am I living the life I want to live? Am I being the person I want to be?”
