Tuesdays with Morie - Mitch Albom

This quote was added by miyukihime
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.

Mitch Albom irritates me. When does he think that people find time to devote themselves to their communities? Or to creating things? Most of us are so busy working full time, raising kids and doing housework that there is precious little time for anything else. According to good old Mitch, I'm apparently "half-asleep" in a meaningless life. I guess it's easy for rich folk to talk about spending time doing anything other than working and raising kids...

How does Mitch Albom know this? Does he read minds, does he see the future, is he claiming prophetic enlightenment into the whole life and purpose of all, or at least "so many", people? He doesn't know! He's huckstering his own chosen life path. Sorry, but that ain't for everyone. Sometimes the most morose and selfish and vicious person has to be all that to get his purpose done. So I do understand. For example we all are or should be thankful for the expiration date labels on milk. But you know who made that happen? Gangster and vicious murdering Al Capone, when he was repurposing his bootleg transport and delivery appartus as Prohibition ended. Al got a stranglehold on the labeling tech before the other dairies, and bought out a big dairy to take over the milk market, getting law help by making date labeling mandatory. He also ran soup kitchens. Was he a kind man?
