A central theme of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild is grief and the human response to it. Due to a recent unexpected death in my family, the quotes I’ve chosen lean to the darker parts of the book. That’s what makes the book powerful and explains some of Cheryl’s more reckless behavior. Cheryl also has an advice column called Dear Sugar where she tackles a variety of readers’ questions including those about recovering from grief. I’ve pulled some quotes from there as well. Sprinkled in amongst the grief themed quotes are some about love, faith, forgiveness and survival.
