Has our society got you down? Is our culture depressing you? Have you been unlucky in love? Are you tired of feeling like somebody's punching bag? I have just the book for you. The eminently quotable Cheryl Strayed has put together a self-help book called "Brave Enough." You might know Strayed as the writer who brought us the mega-memoir "Wild." She has a terse, pithy, and succulent mode of expression.
Perhaps you spurn the "self-help" category? I know that I do. Don't ignore this book. This is an inspiring collection of Cheryl's most resonant quotes. Here's an example:
"It's folly to measure your success in money or fame. Success is measured only by your ability to say yes to these two questions:
- Did I do the work I needed to do?
- Did I give it everything I had?"
Cheryl Strayed never does things dispassionately. She writes like a dream. What a magnificent woman to interview.
