Quote Challenge 3/3

This is my last post for the quote challenge.

Tuesdays with Morrie quote

This quote is from “Tuesdays with Morrie”, one of my favourite books. I really like this quote because it’s so true. We all know we’re going to die one day, but in our minds, that’s not going to happen for another 50-70 years (depending how long you think you’re going to live).

As a result, most people continue living the same way that they’ve always lived.

There is no sense of urgency to do something different.

We feel like we have a lot of time left.

But if I told you, you only have another year, would you still be doing what you’re doing?

If you live a life with purpose, you wouldn’t have any regrets.

  1. I’ve read this book too, finding it meaningful and philosophical. Every now and then we should be reminded of this quote because life is finite and as you’ve mentioned, live with purpose!
    Thank you so much for nominating me, these quote challenges are fun to do~ 😀

  2. I like one thing Albom said in the book. It was that death ends a life, not a relationship. I think that’s exactly right. We lose people we love when they die, but we only lose them physically, we still have the love and the warmth from them long after they’re gone. I think, when considering how to live with a expiration day in mind, it’s worth remembering that who we truly are lives long after we do.
