Cheryl Strayed Quotes

"We donít reach the mountaintop from the mountaintop.  We start at the bottom and climb up."

"Be the captain. You are the captain. Take the ball and run."

"Allow your acceptance of the universality of suffering to be a transformative experience. You do that by simply looking at what pains you squarely in the face and then moving on."

"You donít have to move fast or far. You can go just an inch. You can mark your progress breath by breath."

"Nobodyís going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether youíre 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."

"Self-pity is a dead-end road. You make the choice to drive down it. Itís up to you to decide to stay parked there or to turn around and drive out."

"Eight of the ten things you have decided about yourself at the age of twenty will, over time, prove to be false. The other two things will prove to be so true that youíll look back in twenty years and howl."

"I considered my options. There was only one, I knew. There was always only one. To keep walking."

"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 canít go on."

"You will come to know things that can only be known with the wisdom of age and the grace of years. Most of those things will have to do with forgiveness."

"Stop asking yourself what you want, what you desire, what interests you. Ask yourself instead: What has been given to me? Ask: What do I have to give back? Then give it."

"Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes youíll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes youíll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room."

"Transformation doesnít ask that you stop  being you. It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strength thatís already inside of you. You only have to bloom."

"Hello, fear. Thank you for being here. Youíre my indication that Iím doing what I need to do."

"Believe in the integrity and value of the jagged path. We donít always do the right thing on our way to rightness."

"Youíre running your own race. We donít dig or not dig people based on a comparison chart of body measurements and intellectual achievements and personality quirks. We dig them because we do."

"Be about ten times more magnanimous than you believe yourself capable of being. Your life will be a hundred times better for it."
