In Mitch Albom's "Tuesdays With Morrie," he included several quotations by Morrie Schwartz that are very indicative of his philosophy on the "classroom of life." 

"The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. " and "Learn how to live and you'll know how to die; learn how to die and you'll learn how to live."


Morrie believed very strongly that unless we learn to care about each other and treat each other equally our society is doomed.  As Morrie tells Mitch in the book when they are discussing the OJ Simpson case, "we are all born and we all die that makes us the same."
