From the bestselling author of Wild, a collection of quotes--drawn from the wide range of her writings--that capture her wisdom, courage, and outspoken humor, presented in a gift-sized package that's as irresistible to give as it is to receive.
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.
Keep walking.
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Book This book is pretty good - it has some humour in it with the language that they use which is often not incorporated in these types of books. I wish it was a bit longer, but my mom has given this to many of her friends for gifts and they all liked it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very disappointed was hoping this book would be inspiring and it was not, I am not inspired by the repetitive use of the ''f'' word, and other words like ''shit'' and ''asshole'' very surprised this book was featured on Super Soul Sunday...wasted 20$ :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Motivational & Inspirational I love quotes, but I've never actually had a book of quotes so this is a nice change for me. I haven't read any of Cheryl Strayed's books yet (although "Wild" is very high on my to-read list), so I didn't really know what to expect from a book of quotes by her. I did hope it would be motivational and inspirational – and it was. In "Brave Enough", you'll find a ton of wise quotes about life, love, and forgiveness. Some of these hit really close to home and left me teary-eyed, and some made me feel like I could do anything if I only put my mind to it or were willing to work for it. There were some that I didn't really identify with at this point in my life, but I think it's normal for one person to not identify with all of the statements in a collection of quotes – the ones that don't resonate with me could be the ones you identify with the most! Cheryl's quotes involve compassion, tough love, empathy, bravery, and much more. Her words are sometimes funny and often comforting. She teaches us that life will never be perfect and we'll be terrified sometimes – we just have to try to be “brave enough.”
