Cheryl Strayed Quote: “This is not “how your story ends”. It’s simply where it takes a turn you didn’t expect.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “Obviously memoir is subjective truth: It is my memory, my perspective, that’s the beauty. But I still wanted to be as factual as I could.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “That’s how we find our way outward and onward. By holding onto beauty hardest. By cradling it like the cure that it is. By making it realer than anything ever was. The rest is just monsters and ghosts.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “You go on by doing the best you can. You go on by being generous. You go on by being true. You go on by offering comfort to others who can’t go on. You go on by allowing the unbearable days to pass and allowing the pleasure in other days. You go on by finding a channel for your love and another for your rage.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “The universe, I’d learned, was never, ever kidding.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “I walked all those miles, I learned all those lessons. It’s as if my new life was the gift I got at the end of a long struggle.”

Cheryl Strayed Quote: “There are so many things to be tortured about, sweet pea. So many torturous things in this life. Don’t let the man who doesn’t love you be one of them.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “It seemed to me the way it must feel to people who cut themselves on purpose. Not pretty, but clean. Not good, but void of regret. I was trying to heal. Trying to get the bad out of my system so I could be good again. To cure me of myself.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “The thing about hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, the thing that was so profound to me that summer – and yet also, like most things, so very simple – was how few choices I had and how often I had to do the thing I least wanted to do. How there was no escape or denial. No numbing it down with a martini or covering it up with a roll in the hay.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “Of all the things I’d been skeptical about, I didn’t feel skeptical about this: the wilderness had a clarity that included me.”
