Mitch Albom quotes
Sacrifice is a part of life. It's supposed to be. It's not something to regret. It's something to aspire to.
Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else.
All endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time.
I also believe that parents, if they love you, will hold you up safely, above their swirling waters, and sometimes that means you'll never know what they endured, and you may treat them unkindly, in a way you otherwise wouldn't.
Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from the inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.
Accept who you are; and revel in it.
Strangers are just family you have yet to come to know.
I like myself better when I'm with you.
All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.
When you look into your mother's eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth.
Mitch Albom Life quotes ⇑
No life is a waste... The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we're alone.
In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it.
Mitch Albom Family quotes ⇑
This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It's knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.
All Mitch Albom quotes ⇑
With endless time, nothing is special. With no loss or sacrifice, we can't appreciate what we have
There is everything you know and there is everything that happens. When the two do not line up, you make a choice.
When someone is in your heart, they're never truly gone. They can come back to you, even at unlikely times.
The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone.
Heaven can be found in the most unlikely corners.
