My Letter To Morrie

Dear Morrie,
First off, I would like to thank you for living life. “So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. 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.”   Most of us go our whole lives not really living a day. You taught me so many things! You were an amazing man! I will never be the same. You taught me that there is more to life than just what we can see.
You also taught me how to show love. “There are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don't respect the other person, you're going have a lot of trouble. If you don't know how to compromise, you're going have a lot of trouble. If you can't talk openly about what goes on between you, you're going have a lot of trouble. And if you don't have a common set of values in life, you're going have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.” Its not all about one person you have to work to love.
You also taught me that death is not something to be scared of. “The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.” It is going to happen to us all at one point or another so we might as well know how! It helped to hear you say “Death ends a life, not a relationship.” We sometimes forget that a relationship isn’t just physically seeing a person but holding them in your heart.
You are my greatest inspiration. I wish I could have met you and just talked with you for a while. You were such a blessing to so many people. Fly high Morrie!
Love,
