The Five People You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom

The first book by Mitch Albom that I read was Tuesdays with Morrie. It was a very inspiring book, and so I was very happy when one colleague suddenly passed this book to me for my reading pleasure. And indeed, the moment I started reading, I didn’t want to put it down 🙂


“Your voice will come. We all go through the same thing. You cannot talk when you first arrive. It helps you listen.”

“But scenery without solace is meaningless.”

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

“Strangers are just family you have yet to come to know.”

“No life is a waste. The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone.”

“Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to be. It’s not something to regret. It’s something to aspire to.”

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

“You have peace, when you make it with yourself.”

“Parents rarely let go of their children, so children let go of them. They move on. They move away.”

“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.”
