Tattoo.

Words I would have permanently etched into my skin:

receive truth: let it come from whence it may (joseph smith)

sweet dreams and flying machines (james taylor)

so it goes (kurt vonnegut)

give in to love or live in fear (jonathan larson)

aggression begets aggression (ani difranco)

the glory of god is intelligence, or light and truth (doctrine and covenants 93:36)

this “real,” it’s impossible…if possible (silversun pickups)

let’s unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words (rise against)

i never learned to count my blessings; i choose instead to dwell in my disasters (ray lamontagne)

it’s the hurt i hide that fuels the fire inside me (ray lamontagne)

Defenseless under the night

Our world in stupor lies;

Yet, dotted everywhere,

Ironic points of light

Flash out wherever the Just

Exchange their messages:

May I, composed like them

Of Eros and of dust,

Beleaguered by the same

Negation and despair,

Show an affirming flame.

(w.h. auden)

the best thing you’ve ever done for me is to help me take my life less seriously — it’s only life, after all (indigo girls)

i want to be more than a pretty girl (ani difranco)

five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred minutes (jonathan larson)

in the night…fears and misgivings wax strong, but out in the sunlight there is, for a time, cessation even of the terror of death (theodore dreiser)

you do not have to be good (mary oliver)

tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? (mary oliver)

white hot and passionate is the only thing to be (roald dahl)

do not regret growing older. it is a privilege denied to many. (bottlecap)

words are sacred. they deserve your respect. if you get the right ones, in the right order, you can nudge the world a little. (tom stoppard)

there may be more beautiful times, but this one is ours (jean-paul sartre)

you alone are enough. you have nothing to prove to anybody (maya angelou)
