This appears in “Tuesdays with Morrie” a book I continue to read and recommend to all.
I’ve added this following quote to my Aphorisms page:
“Imagine there’s a bird on your shoulder and every day you ask it:
Is today the day that I die?
Am I ready?
Am I living the life I want to live?
Am I being the person I want to be?
Never do work that uses, hurts or degrades people.
Never make money off the sweat and pain of others. The tension of opposites. We learn from what hurts us, as much as what loves us.”
