The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

Quotes from The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

“Every life has one true love snapshot.”

“No story sits by itself. Sometimes stories meet at corners and sometimes they cover one another completely, like stones beneath a river.”

“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.”

“Fairness does not govern life and death. If it did, no good person would ever die young.”

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

“Parents rarely let go of their children, so children let go of them. They move on. They move away. The moments that used to define them – a mothers approval, a father’s nod – are covered by moments of their own accomplishments. It is not until much later, that children understand: their stories and their accomplishments, sit atop the stories of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones, beneath the water of their lives.”

“Which is worse when left unexplained: a life or a death?”

“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.”

“People say they find love, as if it were an object hidden by a rock. But love takes many forms and it is never the same for any man and woman. What people find is a certain love.”

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

“Each affects the other and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but stories all connect.”
