Life has to end. Love doesn’t

This book is special to me, It shows a view on what happens after we leave here.

We all have our own beliefs on how heaven will be, and how we will be judged.

In this book Mitch Albom shows one point of view beautifully written; a crucial reminder that we are all important.

 

The story recounts the life and death of an old maintenance man named Eddie.

After dying in an accident, Eddie finds himself in heaven where he encounters five people who have significantly affected his life, whether he realized at the time or not.

Here are my favorite quotes from the book:

~There are no random acts. We are all connected. You can no more separate one life from another than you can separate a breeze from the wind~

~No life is a waste. The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone~

~Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you’re not really loosing it. You’re just passing it on to someone else~

~Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from 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~

~Lost love is still love. It just takes a different form. You can’t see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. But when those sense weaken, another heightens. Memory. Memory becomes your partner. You nurture it. You hold it. You dance with it. Life has to end. Love doesn’t.~

~Each life affects the other and the other affectes the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one.~

~

There is also a movie, which is pretty much like the book, and one I cherish a lot.

 

                                                                                  ‘Eddie’ is played by Actor Jon Voight

If you do have a chance, do read this book or watch the movie, and if you don’t believe that in your life you have made a change in someone else’s life, know that we have the power influence or make a positive change. We are all put in this world for a reason, we affect someone in some way, one day or another. A simple gesture could save someone’s life.

So do good as much as you can, because you matter and so does everyone else.
