Tuesday, March 02, 2004THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN
I'm only halfway through reading Mitch Albom's latest novel and already, I am amazed. How the hell did he think/come up with this?!? It makes you think of the effect you've had on other people's lives and vice versa. And also, it helps you realize that you should always look at the brighter side of life (which is what i always try to do). There is a really profound but good lesson to be learned after meeting each person in heaven. According to the book, heaven is a place where you can make sense of your yesterdays.
I just finished reading the chapter about the second person and this quote really made an impact: "...Sometimes, when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else."
Other favorite quotes from what I've read so far are (I've already underlined them with a pencil):
"That there are no random acts. That we are all connected. That you can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind."
"Fairness does not govern life and death. If it did, no good person would ever die young."
"War is no game. If there's a shot to be made, you make it, you hear? No guilt. No hesitation."
"It's the thinking that gets you killed."
