Tuesdays with Morrie (1999 TV Movie)
Morrie Schwartz: When you learn how to die, you learn how to live.
Morrie Schwartz: The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
Morrie Schwartz: Death ends a life, not a relationship.
Morrie Schwartz: Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too - even when you're in the dark. Even when you're falling.
Morrie Schwartz: Dying is just one thing to be sad about. Living unhappily, that's another matter.
Morrie Schwartz: If we accept the fact that we can die at anytime we lead our lives differently.
Morrie Schwartz: My father was afraid of love. He couldn't give it and he couldn't receive it either. Maybe that's worse.
Mitch Albom: Morrie, Morrie, we should stop.
Morrie Schwartz: Not letting ourselves be loved because we're too afraid of giving ourselves to someone we might lose.
Sergio: [News reporters are asking him questions] How do you guys sleep at night?
Mitch Albom: Most of them sleep with their wives.
Morrie Schwartz: Usually in the morning, you know, before everybody gets up, I get so angry, so bitter. Just, what the hell did I ever do to deserve this? Where's the fairness? I cry and I rage. I mourn. And then I detach. It's over; that's it; all over. No more. I just look back on how I've been feeling and I say, well, that's self-pity and that's enough of that for today.
Mitch Albom: Just like that? You just stop?
Morrie Schwartz: Yeah, that's all the time I give it. Start thinking about the day ahead, you know? The people that are going to come to see me, the stories I'm going to hear, and all the stuff I'm going to learn.
Morrie Schwartz: But you know what I dread? Someday soon someone's going to have to wipe my a** for me. But, I'm a lucky man.
Mitch Albom: You're lucky?
Morrie Schwartz: Yeah. I've still got time to learn, time to say goodbye to the people I love. And time to teach my final course.
Mitch Albom: About dying.
Morrie Schwartz: Not about dying, about living. When you know how to die, you know to live.
