Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom Summary (Question and Answer)

Chapter Seventeen (Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom)

CHAPTER SEVENTEEN – The Eighth Tuesday We Talk About Money.
83 123-125 On the seventh Tuesday, Morrie was having ‘a good day’. He was in high spirits owing to a visit he had enjoyed the evening before from a local a cappella group. Feeling enlivened by this experience, Morrie explained to Albom that many people’s main problem was that they didn’t understanding ‘value’. For Morrie, money was ultimately of very little importance and could never replace four things which were far more important. What were these? The four things which Morrie tells Albom money could never replace were love, gentleness, tenderness and camaraderie.
84 127 Morrie makes Albom feel guilty when he explains how unimportant money and status is – two things which Albom had spent much of his life pursuing. Pointedly Morrie tells Albom that it is pointless trying to impress people ‘at the top’ and ‘people at the bottom’. What reason did he give for this? Morrie explains that it is pointless trying to impress people at the top because they will still ‘look down at you’, whilst those at the bottom will ‘only envy you’.
