Tuesdays with Morrie is an excellent book because Morrie teaches Mitch lessons about marriage, greed, and family that young adults can learn from. "Love each other or perish". This quote sums up all of Morrie's views and beliefs on the topic of marriage and love. I feel that people can learn a very big lesson from this short quote. Love and marriage are very important because we all need someone to love and to love back, if we don't we are going to live an unhappy life.

There is a set of "rules" that Morrie stated in this book that we could learn a lot from. Morrie said that your going to have a lot of trouble if you don't respect the other person, if you don't now how to compromise, if you can't talk openly about what goes on between you, and if you don't have a common set of values in life. And the biggest one of those values is your belief in the importance of your marriage. I think that everything that Morrie says in that passage is very true.

When he talks about not knowing how to compromise then you are going to have a lot of trouble. This is very true, if you can't work and give up some things to make things succeed with the person that you love then you are going to have a lot of problems. People can learn a lot from that passage as well as throughout the book about marriage.

Another issue that Morrie talks to Mitch about that people can learn from is greed, and how we as people put our values in the wrong things. I also feel that this is true in today's society. We do put our values in the wrong things, we put our values in money, cars, cloths, and many others, but we all know that that is the wrong place to put our heart.

The final lesson that we can learn from is how important family is. Morrie says," The fact is there is no foundation, no secure ground, upon which people may stand today if it isn't the family". You do need a family that loves
