Cheryl Strayed Quote: “We are obligated to the people we care about and who we allow to care about us, where we say we love them or not.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “The thing about rising is we have to continue upward; the thing about going beyond is we have to keep going.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “And you have to do it no matter what is true. No matter what is hard.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “But as you are surely aware, forgiveness doesn’t mean you let the forgiven stomp all over you once again.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “The question about who you will love and when you will love him is out of your hands. It’s a mystery that you can’t solve.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “The only way you’ll find out if you “have it in you” is to get to work and see if you do.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “One Christmas at the very beginning of your twenties when your mother gives you a warm coat that she saved for months to buy, don’t look at her skeptically after she tells you she thought the coat was perfect for you. Don’t hold it up and say it’s longer than you like your coats to be and too puffy and possibly even too warm. Your mother will be dead by spring. That coat will be the last gift she gave you. You will regret the small thing you didn’t say for the rest of your life. Say thank you.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what your plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history of economics or science or the arts.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “I knew that her love for me was vaster than the ten thousand things and also the ten thousand things beyond that.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “You must love in order to be loved. You must be inclusive in order to feel yourself among the included. You must give in order to receive.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “Only boring people get bored.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “Acceptance has everything to do with simplicity, with sitting in the ordinary place, with bearing witness to the plain facts of our life, with not just starting at the essential, but ending up there.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “And it was true. I always would have guessed it, even all the time that I feared it would never happen. Being there that night was the meaning of my life. Getting there had been my every intention. When I say you don’t have to explain what you’re going to do with your life, I’m not suggesting you lounge around whining about how difficult it is. I’m suggesting you apply yourself in directions for which we have no accurate measurement. I’m talking about work. And love.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “I can’t say when you’ll get love or how you’ll find it or even promise you that you will. I can only say you are worthy of it and that it’s never too much to ask for it and that it’s not crazy to fear you’ll never have it again, even though your fears are probably wrong. Love is our essential nutrient. Without it, life has little meaning. It’s the best thing we have to give and the most valuable thing we receive. It’s worthy of all the hullabaloo.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “We live and have experiences and leave people we love and get left by them. People we thought would be with us forever aren’t and people we didn’t know would come into our lives do. Our work here is to keep faith with that, to put it in a box and wait. To trust that someday we will know what it means, so that when the ordinary miraculous is revealed to us we will be there, standing before the baby girl in the pretty dress, grateful for the smallest things.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “What this requires of us is that we don’t get tangled up in the living, even when we in fact feel woefully tangled up. It demands that we focus not only on what’s happening in our stories, but also what our stories are about.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “The question isn’t whether you should stay or go. The question is: How would your life be transformed if you chose to love this time with all your intelligence?”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “But an ethical and evolved life also entails telling the truth about oneself and living out that truth.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “Nobody is going to give you a thing. You have to give it to yourself.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “I’m sorry,” she said and reached over and squeezed his leg. She couldn’t help but think that she’d ruined his life. It didn’t yet occur to her to wonder about having ruined her own.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “Living at large like this, without even a roof over my head, made the world feel both bigger and smaller to me.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “She understands that attention is the first and final act of love, and that the ultimate dwindling resource in the human arrangement isn’t cheap oil or potable water or even common sense, but mercy.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “They opened my mind to realities I didn’t know existed. They forced me to be resilient, to sacrifice, to see how little I knew, and also how much.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “They are not judgments, punishments, or betrayals. They are a purely peaceable thing: the basic principles you identify for yourself that define the behaviors that you will tolerate from others, as well as the responses you will have to those behaviors.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “There are so many tiny revolutions in a life, a million ways we have to circle around ourselves to grow and change and be okay.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “The most terrible and beautiful and interesting things happen in a life.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “They made my life big. They contributed to an education that money can’t buy.”
Cheryl Strayed Quote: “Do you think miners stand around all day talking about how hard it is to mine for coal? They do not. They simply dig.”
