„How wild it was, to let it be.“

„I didn't know where I was going until I got there.“


„Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes you'll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you'll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

„What if I forgave myself? I thought. What if I forgave myself even though I'd done something I shouldn't have? What if I was a liar and a cheat and there was no excuse for what I'd done other than because it was what I wanted and needed to do? What if I was sorry, but if I could go back in time I wouldn't do anything differently than I had done? What if I'd actually wanted to fuck every one of those men? What if heroin taught me something? What if yes was the right answer instead of no? What if what made me do all those things everyone thought I shouldn't have done was what also had got me here? What if I was never redeemed? What if I already was?“ Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

„I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.“ Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

„I'll never know, and neither will you, of the life you don't choose. We'll only know that whatever that sister life was, it was important and beautiful and not ours. It was the ghost ship that didn't carry us. There's nothing to do but salute it from the shore.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

„Don't surrender all your joy for an idea you used to have about yourself that isn't true anymore.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

„How wild it was, to let it be.“ Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail


„Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

„The universe, I'd learned, was never, ever kidding. It would take whatever it wanted and it would never give it back.“ Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

„You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

„The useless days will add up to something. The shitty waitressing jobs. The hours writing in your journal. The long meandering walks. The hours reading poetry and story collections and novels and dead people’s diaries and wondering about sex and God and whether you should shave under your arms or not. These things are your becoming.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar


„It is not so incomprehensible as you pretend, sweet pea. Love is the feeling we have for those we care deeply about and hold in high regard. It can be light as the hug we give a friend or heavy as the sacrifices we make for our children. It can be romantic, platonic, familial, fleeting, everlasting, conditional, unconditional, imbued with sorrow, stoked by sex, sullied by abuse, amplified by kindness, twisted by betrayal, deepened by time, darkened by difficulty, leavened by generosity, nourished by humor and “loaded with promises and commitments” that we may or may not want or keep.

The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherfucking shit out of it.“
Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

„You will learn a lot about yourself if you stretch in the direction of goodness, of bigness, of kindness, of forgiveness, of emotional bravery. Be a warrior for love.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

„I’m a free spirit who never had the balls to be free.“ Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

„Whatever happens to you belongs to you. Make it yours. Feed it to yourself even if it feels impossible to swallow. Let it nurture you, because it will.“ Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar
