“There is no such thing as ‘too late’ in life” is a piece of wisdom that was once imparted by a wise, old man to an eager student. While it’s a powerful message in itself, this lesson becomes even stronger knowing that this wise, old man had mere weeks to live. A dying man, Morrie Schwartz knew what it meant to live, even though he soon would cease to do so. He knew that it is never too late to enjoy what you love or to try something new. Oftentimes, society judges someone’s worth on how early in life one makes their achievements – from when we are in our first romantic relationship, to when we get our first car, to when we get married and start a family. These judgments can easily make one feel inferior or unfulfilled if one achieves these things “late”. With Morrie’s legacy, we know that happiness can be achieved regardless of when things happen in life, and that it’s never too late.
