My tattoo is a quote from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It reads “You have been in every line I have ever read” and is accompanied by a stack of books. I fell in love with this quote as soon as I saw it and had to get it. For me it means that books can get you through life and love and it represents my love of reading and literature.

There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
