What's a book that changed your life (if any)?

Did you ever read a book which made a big difference in your life?

For me personally it was a popular "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" book by Robert Kiyosaki. It taught me how to control money instead of money controlling my behavior.

    Oct 2 2013: ”Tuesdays with Morrie“
    The story is about an old man Morrie Schwartz ,who was dying from ALS taught a young man named Mitch the lesson of life.It inspired me a lot.It made me cry with joy.
    Here are some quotes by Morrie Schwartz:

    When you learn how to die, you learn how to live.

    The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives your purpose and meaning.

    As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed as ignorant as you were at twenty-two, you'd always be twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It's growth. It's more than the negative that you're going to die, it's the positive that you understand you're going to die, and that you live a better life because of it.

    Love wins. Love always wins.
