The Eighth Tuesday
In the 18th chapter of Tuesdays with Morrie entitled “The Eighth Tuesday: We Talk About Money”, Morrie tells Albom about money and how people brainwash us. Morrie says, “[w]e’ve got a form of brainwashing in our country” “Do you know how they brainwash people? They repeat something over and over and thats what we do in this country. Owning things is good.” Morrie also says that we should only take what we need not what we want and to offer others what you have to give as in your time and presence. Morrie restates an earlier quote “Devote yourself to loving others. Devote yourself to community. Devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” Nothing in his quote says anything about salary and it is unneeded in many cases.
