Brave EnoughBook - 2015
In her three previous books--her critically acclaimed debut novel, Torch , her groundbreaking memoir, Wild , and her dazzlingly insightful "Dear Sugar" advice columns, Tiny Beautiful Things --Cheryl Strayed has shared with an ardently devoted audience the many twists and trials of her remarkable life, offering much-needed truths, as well as laughter, to millions of readers. Her honesty, spirit, and ample supply of tough love have enabled many of us, even in the darkest hours, to somehow put one foot in front of the other--and be brave enough. Whether humorous or wise (and often both at once) Strayed's words are anthems that remind us that we may inevitably make mistakes, but we can also do better, both for ourselves and for others. Such as:
Be brave enough to break your own heart.
You can't ride to the fair unless you get on the pony.
Acceptance is a small, quiet room.
Romantic love is not a competitive sport.
Forward is the direction of real life.
Brave Enough gathers more than 100 of these "mini-instruction manuals for the soul," urging us toward the incredible capacity for love, compassion, forgiveness, and endurance that is within us all.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
I really enjoyed this book and plan to own it. It is a brilliant compilation of quotes the author has collected and some of them hit very close to home. I did not give it 5 stars due to the fact that there are some serious "cuss words' in it. I sound like an old Fuddy Duddy - but I get no pleasure from reading words that I find offensive.
