"I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed.  Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told.  I decided I was safe.  I was strong.  I was brave.  Nothing could vanquish me."  

-Cheryl Strayed, on her fear of hiking 
1100 miles alone on the Pacific Crest Trail.
