The Seventh Tuesday
In the 17th chapter of Tuesdays with Morrie entitled "The Seventh Tuesday: We Talk About the Fear of Aging", Morrie tells Albom about aging and not to be too afraid of dying. Morrie explains that being old is not something that you should feel ashamed of and it is like being a child again because everyone is doing things for you. Albom then tells Morrie that he feels like he is growing old. Morrie explains that aging is something you should embrace. He says "[a]nd, in addition to all the miseries, the young are not wise. They have very little understanding about life. Who wants to live every day when you don't know what's going on?"
