Meandering . . .

Today is the birthday of Mitchel David "Mitch" Albom (born May 23, 1958), author, journalist, screenwriter, dramatist, musician, radio and television broadcaster. His books have sold over 26 million copies worldwide.

"Death ends a life, not a relationship." — Mitch Albom

"If you hold back on the emotions--if you don't allow yourself to go all the way through them--you can never get to being detached, you're too busy being afraid. You're afraid of the pain, you're afraid of the grief. You're afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your heard even, you experience them fully and completely." — Mitch Albom

"Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else." — Mitch Albom

"Learn this from me. 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." — Mitch Albom

"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 . . ." — Mitch Albom
