Quotes from Mitch Albom's "Tuesdays with Morrie"

The last class of the old professor's life had only one student. Mitch Albom was the student.

6 Cara Menghindari Penyebaran Identitas Pribadi

Telepon-telepon tersebut dapat mengatasnamakan berbagai macam jenis perusahaan, mulai dari berbagai produk kartu kredit, bank, asuransi, hingga pusat-pusat kebugaran.
