Quote Help

As you all know, earlier this month I got my first tattoo. I showed the picture then, but I'll show it now too because I looooove it sooo much.


Okay, so yes, it's only been a few weeks since I got it, but I already want another one. I was talking with a good friend Andrea on Twitter and she's going in for her first. She said my tattoo post inspired her to go there for hers. Well, my chat with her has inspired me to really figure out what I want for my second one.

I know the basics of what I want. It will be on my forearm as well. This one will represent my writing: a quill pen, resting on a piece of paper, and other pieces of paper like they're blowing in the wind up my arm (might have more, but my tattoo girl will help me figure out all that). The paper will look kind of older like the banner on my current tattoo.

Now, for the quote. I want to add a quote in there. Something meaningful. I love the quote, "It's never too late to be what you might have been" but I'm not sure if that's the quote I want to use. I'm looking for something inspiring.

That's where YOU come in. LOL.

Have any quotes for me? Think I'm crazy and becoming tattoo obsessed in my thirties? ;)
