In the introduction, Tiny Beautiful Things is described as both an “ad hoc memoir” and a sampling of advice replies Strayed wrote for her Dear Sugar column. As with any advice (solicited or unsolicited), some feels irrelevant and some resonates. The pearls of wisdom that resonate make the entire work definitively worthwhile.

Heartfelt advice - whether you agree or not. Real problems in everyday life - you know someone with these problems right now. Her compassion is real and tangible. But more than anything, I am so amazed and grateful for her beautiful use of the language.

- Forgiveness doesn't sit there like a pretty boy in a bar. Forgiveness is the old fat guy you have to haul up a hill.

- The story of human intimacy is one of constantly allowing ourselves to see those we love most deeply in a new, more fractured light. Look hard. Risk that. Don't be strategic or coy. Strategic and coy are for jackasses. Be brave. Be authentic. Practice saying the word 'love' to the people you love so when it matters the most to say it, you will.

- Nobody's going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether you're rich or poor, out of money or raking it in, the beneficiary of ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. And you have to do it no matter what is true. No matter what is hard. No matter what unjust, sad, sucky things befall you. Self-pity is a dead-end road. You make the choice to drive down it. It's up to you to decide to stay parked there or to turn around and drive out.
