“Morrie Schwartz: “Everyone knows they’re going to die, but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently.”
Mitch Albom: “So, we kid ourselves about death.”
Morrie Schwartz: “Yes, but there’s a better approach. To know you’re going to die, and to be prepared for it at any time. That’s better. That way you can actually be more involved in your life while you’re living.”
Mitch Albom: How can you ever be prepared to die?”
Morrie Schwartz: Do what the Buddhists do. Every day, have a little bird on your shoulder that asks, ‘Is today the day? Am I ready? Am I doing all I need to do? Am I being the person I want to be?’ ”
Mitch Albom, in “Tuesdays with Morrie”
