An old man. A young man. Life’s greatest lessons.
Teenagers often think they have all the time in the world. They focus on things that benefit themselves: enjoying our favorite hobbies, spending time with our friends, and trying to get into a good college.
Sometimes teenagers are fortunately enough to have a mentor. Maybe it is a grandparent, or a teacher, or a religious leader. Someone older, patient and wise, who understands that you are young and searching, and is trying to help you see the world as a more profound place, giving you sound advice to help you make your way through it.
For author, Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.
Albom took his relationship with his favorite professor for granted, assuming he would always be around. It wasn’t until he saw a news story featuring Morrie that Albom realized his mentor was not only sick but dying. He decided to visit Morrie and ended up getting the most important lessons of his life.
