Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed

BLOGBrave Enough is a collection of quotes from Cheryl Strayed who is the author of Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar, and Torch.  It is beautifully packaged as a little green book and full of inspiring quotes for when you need them most.  I have only read Tiny Beautiful Things from Cheryl Strayed, which I did really like, however what made me gravitate toward this book was my love of quotes and the way they can provide inspiration and at times comfort.  In her introduction, Cheryl Strayed describes it best:

“I think of quotes as mini-instruction manuals for the soul.  It’s my appreciation of their very usefulness that compelled me to put together this book.  Not because I believe in my own sagacity, but because I believe in the power of words to help us reset our intentions, clarify our thoughts, and create a counternarrative to the voice of doubt many of us have murmuring in our heads–the one that says You can’t, you won’t, you shouldn’t have.  Quotes, at their core, almost always shout Yes!”

Brave Enough is a wonderful collection of quotes that can be enjoyed by everyone, whether you are a Cheryl Strayed fan or not all too familiar with her work.
