Miley Cyrus is gaining ground on her brother Trace in the tattoo count. Not really, but Cyrus has reached number 15 in body ink with her latest tat.
The newest tattoo, positioned on her left forearm contains a speech by President Theodore Roosevelt. It reads, “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
The quote comes from a famous Roosevelt speech, “Citizenship in a Republic,” given on April 23, 1910 in Paris, France.
The full quote reads,
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
What do you think of Miley’s new ink?
